A good little Republic Pictures programmer

All has already been told in the plot line. Not bad, much talk, much more than in other Republic Studios movies. Howard Bretherton is a famous B - and mostly grade Z - film maker. Many many westerns and two serials MONSTER AND THE APE, and WHO'S GUILTY, two serials produced by the terrible Sam Katzman. Two serials that I won't recommend to anyone, even to a guy who would slaughter my whole family...

Back to this little film, I guess that's probably his best picture. I won't watch any of his grade Z westerns, even under a gun barrel, because I already know what i would have to deal with. And I am not masochistic. So, I could only enjoy this little film. But maybe I am wrong, maybe there are some little gems among the dozens of features he was guilty of.

Anyway, this film is worth for movie lovers, and gems diggers as I am.
