A Bit Below Average But With Some Great Songs
19 November 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

An all black B-western, this has a standard plot involving heavies killing and cheating in order to gain control over a ranch owned by innocent homesteaders.

Though hard to entirely dislike, there's not much action and the story is terribly unfocused with generous amounts of time wasted on a silly subplot involving hero Herbert Jeffrey's sidekick Dusty getting cheated, then getting even over an alleged talking mule!

On the plus side, this gets high marks for providing it's juvenile audience a black role-model, something sorely lacking in the nineteen-thirties. The Bronze Buckaroo also features some really great tunes.

The best scene involves the introduction of the main villain's right-hand-man, where he shoots a card shark in the middle of a song and proceeds to physically intimidate Jeffrey's pals.
