Quotes

Alice Borden: Dad improved the place a lot, but it's still the same old Circle B, isn't it, Joe?
Joe Martin: [after some gentle laughter] I knew you'd still love it, Alice. I guess people just don't forget the good things they had when they were kids.
Alice Borden: [after a pause] But the best of these good things are gone. My father... and yours.

Triangular strategy
18 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Monogram's Rough Riders, their version of the Three Mesquiteers work the inside and outside of the law in this film, The Gunman From Bodie. The title role goes to Buck Jones who is infiltrating a gang of rustlers to find out who their leader is. The rustlers have themselves been hired by Alice McIntyre and Dave O'Brien who own a ranch which was inherited by McIntyre after her father and all of his hands were massacred by the same rustlers. The two young people are having their ranch and other affairs run by lawyer Robert Frazer who is the organizer of the rustlers.

While Jones infiltrates the gang as a notorious outlaw, Tim McCoy comes to town as a US marshal sent to investigate. Raymond Hatton goes undercover as a cook at the O'Brien/McIntyre spread. Working a triangular strategy the bad guys are brought to justice.

Jones, McCoy, and Hatton worked very well together as the Rough Riders. In fact so well that in the end all the bad guys are wrapped neatly together in one location without firing a shot.

This film does have a bit more plot to it than your ordinary B western. But that makes it all the better for the adults.
