Wild Bill Ambles Again
14 June 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This decent but unremarkable Columbia B Western stars Bill Elliott in his Wild Bill Hickock persona. Bill spends his time trying to convince a town that a couple of well-respected citizens are actually swindlers. Evelyn Keyes is the pretty love interest and Dub Taylor tries to offer a smattering of comic relief with a squeeze box, some bad singing and an itchy vest.

The direction is by Lambert Hillyer, who had been a key director for William S. Hart in the 1910s. Since the sound revolution, he had been keeping his head down in the B movies, where he could get steady work. The cast is eked out with the usual B western cast. See if you can spot a relatively young Ned Glass as a bank teller.
