My Number One Candidate for Worst "B" Western Of All Time!
25 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Bob Steele is one of my favorite "B" heroes, but this farrago (there's no way you could call it a motion picture) ranks as my number one candidate for Worst Western of All Time. The editing, both visual and sound, is totally inept, the script amateurish, the direction abysmal. No wonder both Carleton Young and Jimmy Aubrey chose to hide their contributions under pseudonyms. Admittedly, hero Bob Steele does his best, but his is a hopeless struggle against overwhelming Poverty Row odds in the rags and tatters of director/producer Harry S. Webb's z-grade "presentation". The heroine, Claire Rochelle, is really hard done by. Not only does her role make little sense, but she is unflatteringly costumed and photographed in this tired, juvenile and oddly fragmented story which proceeds at a snail's pace to its inevitable conclusion via an inept series of jerks and jumps, which are themselves interrupted by unexpected full-screen inter-titles.
