Great Example Of A Lost Genre The-(B-Western)-
2 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bob Baker was never a huge B-Western Star....but his easy going style endeared him to legions of B-Western Fans over the decades........His Dual role in "The Black Bandit"1938, was done by many Western Stars over the years.....What makes this B-Western stand out from all the rest, was a sensable script, and above all, one of the most Pleasant Musical Scores in B-Western History, by Frank Sanucci......Baker's Musical interludes were most enjoyable, and Sanucci used to them to great advantage in scoring the film.....An added plus, was the presence of Veteran Actor Hal Talliaferro, aka: Wally Wales, Floyd Alderson(his real name)....Add Old Pros, Jack Rockwell, Glenn Strange, Carleton Young, and Tom London, and you had the whos who of B-Westerns.......Romance was supplied by the fair Marjorie Reynolds in this above par Universal B-Western.......If you are ever looking for a pleasant and enjoyable Old Time B-Western, you cannot go wrong with the very enjoyable "Black Bandit"---If only it were more available on Video and dvd....With Respect For the Genre----sasheegm-1
