Routine, Except for a Couple of Notable Features
3 April 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Rough Riders' veterans Johnny Trent (Ritter) and sidekick (Knight) return to Arizona to help out Johnny's dad whose ranch is being besieged by a greedy water rights gang.

The plot's pretty standard but there are several notable features. Johnny's relationship with his dad is definitely unusual for a matinée western. The two are estranged such that dad's not too happy to see his son again. Instead, the old man relies on his foreman Wayne (Moore) for help. Then too, we can't tell whether Wayne is really a secret member of the gang or whether he's really loyal to his employer. That adds an interesting complication to the story. Knight's there for comic relief and is not too silly, while Ritter and the musicians provide a mellow presence. All in all, nothing special here, just solid entertainment for Front Row kids from that earlier time and this one.
