It's worth seeing so you can see Buck!
18 January 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you've seen the Clark Gable version of "Call of the Wild", then you'll no doubt remember that huge St. Bernard, 'Buck'. Well, it turns out Buck had a bit of a career beyond this one film--and here he is playing himself in "The Trigger Trio". So, as a fan of old films, I was thrilled to once again see him. Plus, in the end it is Buck who saves the day...yee-haw! Unfortunately, Buck is the most interesting character in the film.

The film does have a very unusual plot--that's for sure. Apparently, a baddie rancher has found hoof and mouth disease among his herd. Instead of reporting it or killing the cattle, he re-brands them and puts them on another ranch! Ultimately, this jerk is willing to do about anything to hide this disease, as the cure for the disease is to kill all the cows! And, because he's so bad, he's willing to do much more...

Apart from a novel plot and Buck, there isn't a lot going for this B-western. It's too low energy and the three Mesquiteers just aren't interesting. Now don't think this means every Mesquiteer movie is dull. This is because the makeup of the three actors varied wildly over the years--with many different actors in the roles (including John Wayne). Some had nice distinct personalities--some did not. This crop didn't.
