A Gabby Showcase
14 August 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

A Gabby showcase, with a rather affable Wild Bill. Seems the territorial governor is using his powers to drive ranchers off their land, that is, until the upright Culver family resists. Good thing Wild Bill and Gabby are there to help out. Sure, the plot is just a variation on the standard theme of baddies cheating regular folks. But it works here mainly because of good acting, especially from veteran baddie Roy Barcroft (Captain Carson), and Herbert Heyes as the irascible governor. Gabby's also at his best lending his inimitable brand of gruff humor, and, crucially, without being clownish. Little Buzz Henry (John Jr.) is also likable, and I expect the envy of every kid in the theater audience. Too bad Anne Jeffries (Edith) doesn't do much but stand around and look pretty, which she does well. Anyway, there's a lot of action, which is essential to these oaters. Still, I wish Wild Bill would at least look like he's aiming before he fires his six-gun. Nonetheless, I give the 60-minutes a "7" on the matinée scale, thanks to a good mix of action, acting, and likability.
