Stealing The Church Funds
23 October 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Gun Law finds George O'Brien and Ray Whitely doing a Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside bit of undercover work in the town of Gunsight. Whitely is a saloon entertainer and does the obligatory songs that one found in the B westerns of the time. O'Brien however masquerades as the infamous outlaw, The Raven who's been sent for by villain Robert Gleckler who runs the saloon.

Both these folks are US Marshals and O'Brien pulls off a really great con in convincing the outlaws he's one of them and then convincing them to masquerade as himself, a US Marshal. There have been a lot of stage holdups with payrolls going missing. The last and most dastardly of the outlaw deeds involve stealing church money.

It's a B western from RKO so I'm not expecting all that much. O'Brien brought a little humor into his role and of course found time to romance the parson's daughter, Rita Oehmann. Gun Law is not an hour wasted.
