Are You a Cowboy?
17 October 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Don 'Red' Barry was a college football player who spent a long life as a B Western Star, mostly for Republic Pictures, which specialized in turning out just this sort of picture, in between its vehicles for singing cowboys Gene Autrey and Roy Rogers. When their biggest straight western star, John Wayne, moved on to greener pastures, Barry became their go-to star, and they produced well-written, inexpensive vehicles like this.

In the one, Barry plays a spy for the north during the Civil War, sent to California to prevent California from joining the Confederacy under the malign influence of the 'Knights of the Golden Circle.' The movie starts out with a beautifully choreographed fight sequence and there are a couple of others throughout -- Republic actually perfected the filming of the fight sequence for its B movies.

All in all a pleasant, if not terribly remarkable effort.
