Full of western action and adventure with and fighting with Indians
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you love westerns (serials) that is full of action, this one is for you.I found the acting and story was very good and very well put together. For that time period of the 30's I found it to be very well done.There is some very well done drama in between all the fist fights,fast horse riding and shootings.I rented it on DVD.Some of it seemed a little dark in spots and unclear,which where the night scenes, but all in all it came through very well. They certainly don't make movies like this anymore.Its great we live in a time where we have so many choices to watch.I love to rent or buy movies that the TV stations fail or refuse to offer.To be honest right now, I would love to scream at the TV stations to stop showing the same movies over and over again"sigh"boring, when there have been so many movies made from the first one ever produced.Even some stations that show classic movies don't even offer these wonderful serials that could be shown week to week.It would be like watching a brand new movie.I also like the way this serial shows the players battling the wicked weather too give the story even more action and adventure.I really wish that more of these serials will be available soon on DVD so us that love these old serials can either get to buy them or rent them.Don't hesitate to enjoy this one.I loved it.
