Noah Beery is the Whole Show
22 September 2001 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

A routine B western, with Don Barry as the most wooden actor in a fairly competent cast which is headed by Noah Beery. Beery is fun to watch as Barry's mentor, as a good bad guy, or a bad good guy, & what a great, deep voice he has! Things are interesting while Beery is on screen, & when he's off screen, I found myself waiting for him to return. There's a little romance thrown in (Luana Walters has very little to do & is wasted in her role) & a little music (one song by Jimmy Wakely). For some reason, the director decided to block the dancers' legs from audience view with a table while they were dancing. Barry doesn't carry a gun for most of the movie, so he's not entirely involved in most of the action scenes, but we get a few nice shots of him doing his own riding, & he seems pretty good at it. If you like this kind of western, you'll probably like Roy Rogers better. I rate it 5/10.
