The telltale nickname
22 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Seeing this film it is interesting to see Roy Barcroft as a good guy as that happened so rarely on the big screen. What's more he and Sunset Carson are father and son.

Back in the day Barcroft was an outlaw known as The Cherokee Flash and has been trying to live it down. But some of his old gang keep trying to drag him back in. Trying to use that to their advantage are crooked lawyer John Merton and crooked sheriff Bud Geary who want the ranch that Barcroft owns.

Fortunately for him Barcroft has an adopted son in Sunset Carson and a loyal hand in Tom London. One ironic thing was that Barcroft had knowledge of a nickname that could have unraveled the dastardly doings long before they were if Sunset had only told him.

The Cherokee Flash is a good introduction to cowboy hero Sunset Carson.
