Storyline

After a cowardly raid on Dad Summers' freight-wagons, in which Summers is killed and his freight shipment burned, Tex Archer and his sidekick, "Duke" Evans, arrive on the scene in time to save Madge Summers from plunging over a cliff in one of the runaway wagons. Kalmus, a competitor of Summers, staged the raid to destroy Summers franchise,which calls for a daily trip over the wagon route. Kalmus orders his henchman, "Red" Holman, to get rid of Tex. When Holman attacks Tex, his own gun goes off during a clinch in the fight and he falls, apparently dead. Tex is charged with murder and jailed. Kalmus incites his gang to storm the jail and lynch Tex. Meanwhile, Duke has discovered that Holman is alive and well. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

NIcely Done Western Action
22 February 2009 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

The director Robert N. Bradbury had done over 100 Westerns by time he did this one in 1937. He is not lyrical like John Ford, but he does know how to keep things moving and entertaining. The budget seems to be a bit higher than the ones he was working with when he did the great John Wayne early westerns in 1934 and 1935. Although this was on a Mill Creek DVD release of 20 musicals, there are only four songs and they are short and well integrated into the story, so it is really a Western more than a musical.

Tex Ritter is charming as the lead and a bit more relaxed than John Wayne. Al Saint John, who worked with Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton in their early silent slapstick films, is delightful. Everyone else is competent.

Growing up on a steady diet of television westerns in the late 50's and early 60's, it is fun to see these early forerunners of the genre. The early television Westerns like "the Lone Ranger" and "Zorro" really copied the style of the 1930's westerns like this one. The later Western series, like "Maverick," "Wagon Train" and "Bonanza" took after the more dramatic/serious and slower paced ones of the 1950's like "High Noon" and "Shane."
