Stolen government bonds
30 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

With the exception that the lead is now an official law enforcement Straight Shooter is a remake of that other B picture classic Phantom Of The Range that Tom Tyler was the star.

Tim McCoy is the lead in this film and he's a hard riding, hard shooting son of the west who also happens to work for the Federal Bureau Of Investigation anticipating the Cowboy G-Men television series by a decade. He's bought himself a ranch at an auction outbidding Julie Sheldon the former owner's niece and Forest Taylor head of the bad guys who killed the former owner.

What's hidden is a fortune in government bonds which brings the FBI in on the case. That's what everybody's looking for.

If you saw the Tom Tyler feature you know how things work out in Straiht Shooter.
