Rocky Lane, Special Agent
27 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This WWII era cowboy programmer was a cut above others of its kind. A virtual "Who's Who" of western cinema appears in this solid, fast-paced film. Lane sells cattle at a profit, but learns that others are being ripped off , or worse ! Rocky gets an appointment to investigate the shenanigans, and finds that the shysters have friends in high places!

Roy Barcroft, Bob Wilkie, Duncan "Cico Kid" Renaldo and others are showcased as Rocky Lane set things right. This film was not the routine, formula movie that I had expected. Fans of Lane,B-westerns or classic villainy should really enjoy this movie .

Happy Trails !!
