Goofs

In Chapter 10, one of the rangers notes the time as 5 AM, yet when King and Pedro step outside a moment later, the sun is directly overhead. It is obviously midday, not early morning, judging by the short shadows. See more »

Modern Western with WWII Overtones
4 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A cynic might say this is King of the Royal Mounted in the Texas oil fields, but it has its own atmosphere. Sammy Baugh does not attempt to overstep either his role or his acting ability and comes across as well as any of Republic's western stars. He is surrounded by pros, especially the bad guys, and has the ever popular Duncan Renaldo as a right hand man. There is an ample mixture of horses, roadsters, l930s air planes, speedboats, even a Zeppelin and a heroine who is her own man, a professional working girl, a trait for which Republic's B action movies are only now receiving credit. As with many other Republic westerns and serials, the soundtrack music rang in my head all these years and was just as I remembered it.The trick is to tell the Fords, GM and Chryslers apart.
