Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Wild Bill and Tex make a classic team .........
25 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film, which teams the great Wild Bill with cowboy crooner Tex Ritter. Bill Elliott cuts a fine figure in the saddle and his peaceable man persona is always worth watching. The mixture of action and intriguing plot were interesting in this one. Well done .

Tex Ritter added a nice addition to the series and his scenes with Wild Bill were pretty good. His voice was well-suited to western film. He never hit the upper levels of B-western stardom, yet he was as good or better than some who did ..........

Whether starring as Red Ryder, Wild Bill or as a co-star, Elliott always delivers in his films. This one is pretty good, and his later films were even better .A fine viewing experience. Enjoy !
