Storyline

Young lawyer Tod Jackson arrives in pioneer Kansas to visit his prosperous rancher friends the Daltons, just as the latter are in danger of losing their land to a crooked development company. When Tod tries to help them, a faked murder charge turns the Daltons into outlaws, but more victims than villains in this fictionalized version. Will Tod stay loyal to his friends despite falling in love with Bob Dalton's former fiancée Julie? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Oh Kay!
10 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Average western with a cast full of familiar faces but this is nothing special. What is Kay Francis, the essence of urban sophistication, doing in this routine oater? Sliding down the Hollywood ladder that's what. After years at the top she quarreled with the brothers Warner over money and they effectively finished her career. Here she is mid slide, freelancing at Universal and whatever studio would offer her work, she had one good part ahead in The Feminine Touch at MGM with Rosalind Russell than it was a series of junk until she ended up at poverty row studio Monogram for three minor films and a fall into obscurity and reclusiveness.
