Indian Affairs agent Jim Blake captures a band of thieves and rustlers preying on the buffalo herds of the Kansas plains, and the Indians, and has them sent to jail, with the gang-leader, Clay Stacy, vowing vengeance. Later,Blake resigns his government position with the intent of becoming a rancher. But he is asked to become a U. S. Marshal and clean up a town that is now being terrorized by the same gang he had sent to prison. His hardest opposition comes from Martha Mercer, who has taken over the job after the former sheriff, her father, was killed by the gang. Written by Les Adams <>

How To Make A Cheap Western
23 June 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Frontier Days was never considered for any Oscars I'm sure because it has no originality in anyway. It's just a cut and paste story with a lot of footage from Dodge City used and Truman Bradley to narrate the gaps.

With Robert Shayne and Dorothy Malone deliberately wearing costumes that look like Errol Flynn and Olivia DeHavilland, I'm sure this was just another way for Jack Warner to keep a couple of his young contract players working. It would take eleven more years for Dorothy Malone to win her Oscar and shorter than that for Bob Shayne to gain television immortality as Inspector Henderson on Superman.

Why Errol and Olivia didn't get any billing is a question. The thing is shoddily put together that you can plainly recognize them. Olivia in fact is shown driving the wagon from the scene wear Bobs Watson is dragged to his death. They should have given young Mr. Watson a credit as well.

The plot such as it is has Shayne as a former Indian agent taking on the job as marshal to tame Civilization, Kansas where Dorothy has already taken the job as sheriff in place of dad who's been killed by the same gang Shayne once had arrested when he was an Indian Commissioner.

Jack Warner just didn't have the knack for this. Now Herbert J. Yates at Republic, there was a man who could reuse stock footage over and over and get the most out of it.

Jack you were out of your league.
