mira mckenney one mean mama, 3 September 2007
Author: Mike Newton ( from Hamilton OHIO

A subplot to Rough Riders of Cheyenne shows the vindictiveness of a woman scorned at the alter. Mira McKenney holds a grudge against Eddie Waller for marrying someone else. She tries to keep the feud going by indoctrinating her daughter Melinda (Peggy Stewart) and her wimpy son (Michael Sloane). At one point, she slaps Peggy down and threatens her with a thrashing. Peggy stands up to her while posing with her hand over her six-gun. Not exactly the type of thing mothers of the Forties would want their children to see. It was scenes such as these that lifted Republic "B" westerns out of the ordinary grind. Otherwise, it was a typical Republic Sunset Carson that no doubt brought his fans to the theater
