Early Wayne, 26 February 2008
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Red River Range (1938)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

"B" Western from Republic has The Three Mesquiteers (led by John Wayne) trying to determine the cause of various cattle going missing. This is really no better or worse than the thousands of "B" films made during this period but you do have Wayne here, which puts it a notch above other films that did this very storyline. There's some nice action but the story is oh so predictable.

As of now, the only way to view these is on AMC but that means you also get commercials. Hopefully one day all the films will be released in a box set.
