One of Gene's Best!
12 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

This entry is on everyone's must-see list because it co-stars the legendary Betty Bronson. Betty had actually retired from movie-making in 1932, and after this "comeback", she didn't make another movie until A Pocketful of Miracles in 1961. Betty is absolutely lovely here and it's a thrill to see what a fine pair Gene and Betty make in this really top-notch script that helps to make it (as far as I'm concerned) one of Gene's top five pictures. Other assets include a fine support cast led by Smiley Burnette (who excels in what amounts to a character role), LeRoy Mason (a well-spoken heavy), Charles Middleton (Gene's dull-witted dad), and Russell Simpson (a delight as a really nasty piece of work). Good slots are also provided by Jack Dougherty (the heavy's partner in crime), Henry Hall (the sheriff), Jack Ingram and even Art Mix. Mr Toones, on the other hand, has – thankfully! – but one brief moment.

Despite its somewhat off-putting title, this entry shapes up as one of Gene's most vibrant and exciting. Even Joseph Kane, normally a rather humdrum director, seems to have realized the movie's potential and pulled out all stops to make it as thrilling as possible. Production values are great. (If you're quick, you can plainly spot Kane in a rare on screen appearance as one of the turpentiners. As far as I know he actually faced the camera only five times in his lengthy directorial and editing career).

Please note that while the Platinum Disc print is of good quality, it's mastered from the TV cut-down that's missing six minutes of essential footage, including the opening scenes of the street parade, other bits and pieces here and there, and the entire episode where Gene rides away from his home ranch after being dismissed by his dad, encounters Betty who asks him when he's coming back. Gene tells her that he doesn't know. A tearful Betty promises to wait for his return.
