My favorite World War II propaganda Western.
23 February 2004 | by (Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a good example of a World War II propaganda Western. I gave The Valley of Hunted Men a vote of 4, but it is really a 10 in my book. I am a fan of Three Mesquiteer films and evil Nazi films and this Western brings the two together. It stars Bob Steele, who you may remember as Duffy on F-Troop, Tom Tyler, who has over 100 Westerns to his credit in the three decades between 1924 and 1953, and Jimmy Dodd, who you may remember from the original Mickey Mouse Club. But what makes this Western special for me is Dutch actor Roland Varno's role as the leader of the Nazi killers. Roland Varno made a career of playing Nazis and he did it so well. This movie has an action packed first half but then the pace slows quite a bit. I have only seen this film twice but I would love to see it on DVD. It intrigues me also as a film that could have been much better if it had been done outside of the Three Mesquiteer series as a straight propaganda film with the escaped Nazis terrorizing the West.
