Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Bob Allen aka 'Smoke': [to Ranger Hal Garrick] Hal, I think I'll be needing a best man, I hope. Maybe you'd better get that shave, hmm.

This Smoke is a powerful bad hombre....
24 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ranger Bob Allen is sent to infiltrate the infamous Sayers gang, posing as a desperado known only as Smoke. In doing so, he falls foul of displaced lead henchman, Sneed, who discovers the hoax and tips off his boss.

Allen is adequate as the hero, Iris Meredith - looking lovely as always

  • is the obligatory rancher's daughter, Robert Henry is her supposedly


cute and endearing little brother - how we all laughed! -and Hal Taliafero is the ranger's sidekick, providing what I believe is intended as comic relief, mostly about whether or not he needs a shave.

Strictly for B western completists this one as - unless you count the fact that Allen and Meredith warble a duet about Wyoming - there is absolutely nothing that distinguishes this from hundreds of other standard shoot 'em ups.
