Interesting Race Western

Bronze Buckaroo, The (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Interesting, if not too original, all black cast western has a gang of cowboys showing up to visit a friend when they learn he's disappeared. After some investigating it turns out that he's been kidnapped by a crazy man (Spencer Williams) and his gang who want him to sign over his property. The story isn't too original but I was surprised to see how well written some of this film is. There's quite a bit of comic relief that works very well and gets several laughs including a joke involving a talking mule and there's some card shark stuff that comes off very good. Performances range from good to poor with Williams coming off the best. This is nothing great but it's interesting nonetheless. Also included is some great music.
