Just Average
15 November 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Though certainly worth watching for the energy of the very likable Roy Rogers in one of his earliest starring roles, this is really just an average Western, at least by the standard of most of Rogers's movies. The story has enough to be worth watching, and there are some good moments, but not a lot more.

The plot in this one has Roy in old Wyoming, where a gang of nasty cattle rustlers has been causing havoc and suspicion. Roy has to protect his ranching partner, figure out how the rustlers are operating, and convince a rather dull-witted sheriff of the facts. The plot that follows has a few too many holes this time, but it does contain some decent action.

There is a bit more singing here than you usually find in the early Rogers features. Mary Hart (Lynne Roberts) also appears as the heroine, though there is not a lot of help from the rest of the cast. All of Rogers's movies are watchable if you like Westerns, and this early feature certainly should not be evaluated too harshly, but it really is just an average effort.
