Rootin Tootin Shoot-em Up
6 February 2004 | by (not London, England) – See all my reviews

It was quite surprising to see Harry Woods in the role of a good guy marshal instead of the heavy he played along with Roy Barcroft in a dozen or so other westerns. Anne Jeffreys is always a pleasure to watch no matter the size of the part. Gordon Nance, as usual was cast as Wild Bill something or other, an identity crisis he assumed in earlier films where he was Wild Bill Saunders, then Wild Bill Hickock. Although, he was alleged to have been a quick draw artist, and often wore his hardware backwards, the notion became incongruous. This sorry portrayal was even further clouded by raising his six gun over his head and wildly throwing his arm towards the intended target. Perhaps that's where he derived his "Wild Bill" calling card. Good old matinee fare for those that miss it.
