Wild Bill cleans up a gang led by a disreputable oil man
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can count on movies directed by John English to be tight. No exception here, and there are usually some well-staged fights and stunts. One here uses a stagecoach going over an unfinished bridge and another uses a wooden oil rig.

Wild Bill has retired as marshal but he's coaxed back into it by a friend of his father who runs the Ross Petroleum company. Only thing is that one of the help is running a gang that upper management knows nothing about. Gabby Hayes is on hand as Wild Bill's friend and former deputy.

One of the honest but short-tempered independent drillers is framed, and that places Wild Bill squarely in the middle. But he's smart and he knows how to use the law to advantage. The plot twists and turns, but always logically. Republic had some very good script writers for these above-par westerns.

Anne Jeffries is on hand as a female interest to fill out the 1 hour b-western. Bill Elliott makes good use of his deep voice. Good fun, and it feels good to know that justice is going to win out in the end. This, after all, is a 1943 feature.
