Two western greats in one interesting film ..........
Tex Ritter and Johhnny Mack Brown team up in this action-filled programmer from the early 1940's. The former football star and country crooner take on some mangy cowpokes who had already framed Brown once and are about to do it again!
At this point in their careers, the pairing was intended to allow the western greats to pool their on screen strengths. The result is this standard tale of revenge and redemption on the old frontier. Ritter was always pleasant in this type of role and Brown handled the action and fistfights in a first rate manner. Overall, it was a good job.
While this was not an A-level film, it should appeal to die-hard fans of the western programmers..... I did !
