Storyline

Ma Conway, owner of a cattle ranch and publisher of the Laramie Bulletin, wages an up-hill battle to have Wyoming join the Union. She refuses to be intimidated by corrupt politician Lee Landow and crooked banker Jesse Dixon, teamed up to fight her. Led by cowhand Eddie Reed and foreman Uncle Ezra, the Conway cattle drive is blocked at La Platte Pass by the Dixon henchmen, led by Ringo. A fight ensues and Eddie is saved by the quick trigger hand of the Cheyenne Kid, a notorious outlaw. Vicky, whom Ma has raised as her daughter, admires Cheyenne's courage to the chagrin of Eddie, who is in love with her. Cheyenne, on his way to a job in Laramie, turns down Ma's offer but when he gets to Laramie he finds he has been hired by Landow and Dixon to ruin Ma's cattle business and, in order to carry out the plan, he accepts Ma's ranch-job offer. Accidents quickly begin and Eddie suspects Cheyenne but Ma refuses to listen to his warnings, as she has become fond of the young outlaw. Eddie ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Only for those who must see EVERY B-western ever made.
30 July 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very tough movie to watch. Part of it because it's a cheap and dull film. However, part of the problem with watching it isn't the fault of the film makers. The public domain copy is simply a mess--with lots of gaps, skips, faded color and scratchiness. This is clearly an orphaned film! It's degraded horribly...and no one is about to step forward to save it.

The film stars two prolific but minor western B-movie stars--Eddie Dean and Lash LaRue. The plot involves a lady named 'Ma' and her attempts to use her newspaper to push for statehood. However, some jerks are against statehood for their own selfish reasons. It's basically a variation of western plot #3--the boss-man who wants to control all the land/the local government/the water rights.

The biggest problem for me wasn't the lousy print but the completely lethargic look and feel to the film. Although there is some obligatory singing and action, none of it is inspired or interesting. And, you can clearly believe that its budget was a paltry $36,000.
