Top Post-Duke 3M Entry
5 July 2005 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

In 1942, many series set in other places and times were infused with relevance to the Nazi crisis at hand. The Three Mesquiteros "modern"-day Westerners in mining country is best remember as the series where John Wayne earned his oats. But other veteran cowpokes were regulars in other periods, and this one stars Bob Steele and Tom Tyler. Normally, they were fast-paced oaters, long on action, short on character development. This one actually allows us inside some of the characters as an undercover Nazi throws unfair suspicion on a scientist of German ancestry working on the 3M ranch on a wartime project for the Allies. Still no shortage of action, gunplay, and horseplay, but more welcome introspection than usual cements this classic entry as two cuts above the norm.
