If you like westerns you must absolutely get this film if it ever gets released on DVD. It's a comic western with plenty of exciting western action. Two actors who rarely made westerns, Franchot Tone and Broderick Crawford, star as an eastern U.S. Marchall and a good-old boy cowboy respectively, who have to deal with organized cattle rustlers. The Cattlemen's Protective Organization is actually rustling cattle from ranchers who won't join the organization. Peggy Moran is a rancher's daughter who aggressively pursues her man, Franchot, although today we'd consider her a stalker. Andy Devine and Mischa Auer are the comedy relief, in a film that needs no relief because everyone has great comic scenes.
