Counterfeiting In the West
4 September 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dude Cowboy casts Treasury Agent Tim Holt on the trail of counterfeiters in the west. I can't say whether it was the old west or modern west as the cast wore 19th century garb, but there were such things as telephones in use. In that I certainly agree with the other reviewer.

Despite that the film was a decent one, very typical of the quality of Tim Holt's westerns at RKO which were a lot better than even Republic cowboys were doing. Tim's not just looking for counterfeiters, but for a kidnapper as well as Bureau of the Mint engraver Byron Foulger is snatched off a train and forced to work for the outlaws. Pursuing her own investigation is Foulger's daughter Marjorie Reynolds. And helping Tim are his sidekicks Ray Whitley and Lee White.

The boys go to work at a Dude Ranch as that's where the trail leads and the film even gives grizzled old Lee White a bit of romance with spinster schoolteacher Helen Holmes. Her trying to correct his grammar, she might have had better success with Gabby Hayes.

As in Holt westerns enough action and gunplay to satisfy any fan of who I consider the best of cowboy heroes.
