Steele and the Mesquiteers save the day !
1 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The long-running Three Mesquiteer series featured a number of line-up changes through the years. In this one, tough, wiry Bob Steele is joined by the silver screen's Captain Marvel, Tom Tyler. Comic relief is provided by Rufe Davis in this standard tale of bandits waylaying an oil-drilling operation.

The series was best when it starred John Wayne, Crash Corrigan and Max Terhune -- but this lineup was nearly as good ! The action, chemistry and humor were well blended in this fun sagebrush programmer. Tom Tyler was a great addition and Bob Steele was that rare B-star who could hold his own in the acting department. Enjoy this one !
