Nice action, well played

Although it's nothing special, except for an exceptional cast, "Cyclone on Horseback" is worth watching for that exceptional cast.

Tim Holt is, of course, one of the classic stars of western movies. He was always a pleasant performer in even the lamest B westerns, and "Cyclone" is far from lame.

Marjorie Reynolds was one of the loveliest actresses ever to grace the silver screen, even though she seldom had the role to challenge or properly to showcase her.

Ray Whitley was one of the best singers of his genre and made a pretty good cowboy, too.

Dennis Moore also had one of the best voices in movies, although I don't think he was ever a singer.

All the actors were good, even those playing minor bad guys, and they were good cowboys, too, and I don't understand why more of them didn't make it to the top ranks.

One of the glories of this film is it lets the minor characters have a chance to shine.

All in all, "Cyclone" is an hour's worth of good entertainment.
