Storyline

The sixth film of Monogram's eight-film series, "The Rough Riders", has U. S. Marshals Buck Roberts (Buck Jones) and Tim McCall (Tim McCoy) coming to a Texas town to visit their friend, U. S. Marshal Sandy Hopkins (Raymond Hatton), only to learn that he has disappeared, and is suspected of the murder of John Dodge (Jack Daley), owner of practically the whole town, except the hotel Sandy owns and runs when he isn't on an assignment as a Marshal. The murder has been committed by the henchmen of Bart Logan (Harry Woods), who intends to take over the dead man's property and whose men are holding Sandy prisoner to make it appear that he fled after arguing with and killing Dodge. Just before the murder, Logan sent a letter to Dodge with the news that the latter's long-missing wife is returning, and in a short while, Stella (Lois Austin), a Logan accomplice, arrives posing as the missing Ann Dodge, thus establishing her right to the Dodge property. Sandy, allowed to escape, returns ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Two Marshalls in search of the Marshall...
6 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of eight "Rough Riders" movies from Monogram Pictures. Despite a name that makes me giggle (don't ask), the films weren't all that interesting--mostly because the production values and energy levels were so low. But, as I am a big Tim McCoy fan, I decided to watch this film anyway.

The plot is quite confusing. It finds US Marshalls Buck (Buck Jones) and Tim (Tim McCoy) going to meet their friend, Marshall Sandy (Raymond Hatton). However, Sandy has disappeared and is accused of murder. Can Buck and Tim find their friend, sort out this mess and bring the real killer to justice? The biggest thing that surprised me was seeing McCoy's character killing several of the bad guys. None of this shooting them in the hand crap--I am talking about plugging them! This was quite practical and I liked it--too bad the rest of the film wasn't so cool. In fact, the film is VERY slow up until the finale. And, when the finale came, it was also a bit lame. In particular, I loved the battle where the baddies and the hero were all only about 10 feet apart behind tables and were shooting non-stop for about 5 minutes. The tables were totally unsplintered and no one got hurt! Yet, while this was happening, Tim was killing baddies with crazy abandon just down the street! Crazy!

I can't compare this to the Rough Rider films, as it's only about the third one I've seen. However, as a Tim McCoy film its quality is far lower and more dreary than the stuff he was making just a few years earlier. At best fair entertainment.
