Quotes

Marshal Buck Roberts posing as John Robbins: [posing as an outlaw and intervening as Sandy, who is playing his part as a janitor, is being mistreated] What are you getting so riled up about? It was just an accident.
Henchman: Accident - nuthin'! He ought to know how to handle a mop by now.
Marshal Buck Roberts posing as John Robbins: Well, some people are born to handle mops; some are not, as you seem to know so much about.
Marshal Buck Roberts posing as John Robbins: [authoritatively] Just pick up that mop and show him how.

Three heroes save the day ............
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In another film in their great western series, Buck Jones, Colonel Tim McCoy and Ray Hatton go undercover to solve a jewelry theft along the Mexican border. They each work covertly to rein in the dastardly thieves and restore order to the area.

Western film trios were popular during this era of film and this pairing was one of the best. Buck Jones and Tim McCoy were tough but personable on screen and ray Hatton was one of the best western character actors ever.

This film was above average, with good action, plot and casting. This one compares favorably with many of the better films of that other cowboy trio, the Three Mesquiteers. Enjoy !
