Storyline

Rancher Brad Henderson (George O'Brien) rides to Star City to be the best man at the wedding of his boyhood friend, Sheriff Bill Gregory (LeRoy Mason) Encountering Fred Cleary (Paul Fix), Tommy Payson (Malcolm 'Bud' McTaggart) and Frank Wiley (Glenn Strange) on the road, he rides with them unaware they intend to rob the bank while everyone is at the wedding. Brad walks into the holdup in which the cashier (Gaylord Pendleton) is killed and Gregory seriously wounded. He chases the bandits but is himself captured by the posse. Deputy Al Reeves (Harry Woods), secretly the gang's leader, arrests Brad and Gregory, near death and unconscious, cannot identify him. Al divides the loot and commands his three henchmen to beat it for the border. Brad escapes and takes after them. He finds Cleary, dead from thirst, in the desert and mails Cleary's share of the loot to Gregory but it falls into the hands of Reeves, who sets out for Tule Mesa after Brad. He is chasing Payson when the latter rides ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Virginia Vale is wearing a dress with a zipper. They were patented in 1851, and The Universal Fastener Company debuted it at the 1893 Worlds Fair, where it was met with little interest. Before 1930, most clothing was fastened with buttons and hooks. See more »

George O'Brien rides off into the sunset
25 January 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This RKO western was the last in O'Briens western career with the exception of a couple of films for John Ford and an outing with the Three Stooges.It is a very formulaic B western.The sort that starts with a bank robbery and a couple of murders in the first reel to make sure that the audience was well and truly hooked.There are a couple of songs from a sister act which seemed to be compulsory for westerns of this period.George O'Brien seems to be a fairly laid back character at times softly smiling and obviously,at least mentally,one step ahead of the villains.So altogether it passes a reasonably entertaining hour.So if you see it in the schedules it is worth giving it a view.
