Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Enforcing A Monopoly With Six Guns
15 June 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Bad Men Of Deadwood while it doesn't quite take us back to the days of gold strike in the Black Hills, takes us to when the town was starting to grow. But the people who were there first have a businessman's association that's a cover for a monopoly. They don't like newcomers and will do anything to stop them.

Roy Rogers plays a trick shot artist in Gabby Hayes's medicine show with the lovely and funny Sally Payne and all get involved in the fight for some fair business practices. Also involved are Carol Adams who works for newspaper owner Henry Brandon.

They've got a federal judge who is sympathetic in Herbert Rawlinson. The sheriff is in the pocket of the business association and he's got a murderous deputy in Jay Novello. That's a surprise because later on Novello played funny little ethnic parts usually Italian. Here he's quite serious and deadly.

Singing is kept to a minimum and it's usually part of the medicine show. Emphasis definitely on action in this good Roy Rogers western.
