My Childhood Heroes
14 July 2004 | by (Scranton, Pa.) – See all my reviews

My two brothers and I used to pretend that we were Crash, Dusty, and Alibi, running through the back yard with cap guns blazing. I only remember seeing three of the 24 films that they starred in, but of the three, the most memorable was Tumbledown Ranch. This film evoked the earliest vestage of time travel, with the trio assuming a modern day personage of their "Range Buster" ancestors. After vanquishing the evil doers, they all awaken under a tree, back in their own time. Although their films would appear "corny" by today's standards, for my brothers and I they provided just the role models we needed growing up in the fifties.
