Three cheers for the Mesquiteers !
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film from the Three Mesquiteers was an action-packed western that fans of the era's B-films are sure to love. The trio was again well-cast here, with a supporting cast that included the sinister (and prolific) Roy Barcroft. Many copy-cat western trios were to follow in the next decade, but none could hold a candle to these originals!

Crash Corrigan and Livingston are especially noteworthy here.... they interact here in a convincing and believable way. The later films in this series were less action-packed and more routine than this one. This film stands out from others in the series and should be enjoyed by most western fans.
