OK 30's B-Western
25 July 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

An average B-Western, "The Painted Trail" has a stock plot and routine characters, but contains a reasonable amount of action, and the acting is not too bad. It stars Tom Keene as a US Marshall who tries to infiltrate a gang of smugglers and cattle rustlers, in an attempt to gather evidence about their activities. This idea wasn't even new in the 30's, and the story that follows is almost completely predictable after the first couple of scenes. Keene is likable enough (even if his acting is nothing special) to help make you want to see whether or not he can pull it off. There's not all that much here, but it's watchable for those who like Westerns of the era.
