Should have kept a cool head
6 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Lone Star Trail pairs two B picture cowboy heroes Johnny Mack Brown and Tex Ritter in a tale of investigation and apprehension, the result of which would be to clear a man who has already served two years in prison for a robbery he didn't commit.

The innocent man is one of our heroes Johnny Mack Brown and being on parole he can't carry a six gun which would cramp the style of any cowboy hero. That's all right because Tex Ritter who is really an undercover government agent gets in enough shooting for both of them.

Lots of action is involved to cover up a poorly plotted script because the bad guys are out to get Brown even before he's set foot in town. Seems to me that all they had to do was keep a cool head and do nothing suspicious and Brown or Ritter couldn't have touched them.

Fuzzy Knight has some good scenes as the sidekick who is also the town barber and Jennifer Holt, daughter of Jack and sister of Tim, looks pretty in her cowgirl outfit as the girl Johnny Mack Brown left behind. And one of the villains, none other than Robert Mitchum at the beginning of his long and illustrious career.

For fans of B westerns and Robert Mitchum completists.
