Humor Laced Action Western
24 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Deadwood Dick is available from collectors at The Serial Squadron. It pits Deadwood Dick against the evil Skull in a fast paced western of 15 chapters. It features Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickock characters as well. This a very good effort from Columbia studios and is directed by Laurel and Hardy director James Horne. There is humor but it goes hand in hand with the action.
