A Second Set Of Books
20 September 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sagebrush Law in this case is being administered by Tim Holt and sidekick Cliff Edwards. The culprits are Roy Barcroft and Ernie Adams and fans of the B western usually know that when these two make an appearance in a film, no doubt as to who the villains are.

Not that it's much of a secret during the film as to who the villains are and what they're up to. Tim's father who is a respected banker in the town sends for his cowboy son because he feels he's in trouble. Minutes before Holt and Edwards arrive in town, the father is found shot to death in the bank.

And of course later on a bank examiner finds that the bank is insolvent because the father has been dipping in the till. But there's skulduggery afoot and it involves a second set of books and a bit more besides.

Sagebrush Law is your usual no frills Tim Holt B western. What I always liked about Holt westerns is their consistent quality of writing and a cowboy hero who was usually all business. I will say this that even when Tim says that the suicide the doctor declared is really a homicide, the doctor himself should have realized it if in fact this is a small town and everyone knows everyone and there habits and idiosyncrasies.

But don't let that deter you from watching Sagebrush Law.
