Storyline

The cattlemen graze their cattle in the big pines, but the railroad wants to clear cut the land and sell the timber for profit. Then they can sell the land to another railroad and make a lot of money while destroying the wilderness. Scott and Henry are against them and try to show that Jay and Dunlap are robber barons. First they must stop the phoney homesteading scam and convince Anne, that her glowing tributes to the railroad are unfounded by their greed. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Good Production
3 August 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

RKO certainly didn't stint on hiring extras for this horse opera. More crowds emerge here than many A-productions, and the guys do look like roughnecks. It's a better-than-average oater, with towns and countryside not seen in a hundred other matinée westerns. Also, the plot has topical relevance since the baddies use subterfuge to destroy the forest ecosystem for sneaky profit. On the other hand, Scott (O'Brien) and the cowboys want to keep the forest so their cattle have grass to graze.

I really like Robert Fiske as gunslinger Matt. His hard-eyed stare and deadpan demeanor are striking to see and bespeak a lifetime of casual cruelty. Chill Wills too does well with comedy relief without being silly, some of his tall tales being a real hoot. Then too O'Brien gets to sport some of the biggest Stetsons on record, at the same time, he's pushing a bit on the waistline, but then he is a middle-aged 40. It hasn't slowed him down, however.

All in all, it's a colorful and well-produced programmer with a good positive message.
