Claim Jumping on a large scale
17 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Allan Lane plays a roving cowboy who seems to know an awful lot about the law regarding land claims in Topeka Terror. That knowledge is going to come in handy when he helps a bunch of settlers being swindled during the Oklahoma land rush of 1889. That is after he saves Tom London and his daughter and Twinkle Watts from a runaway team of horses.

Perennial Republic villain Roy Barcroft is on hand and I have to say his villainy reaches some new heights. Give the man credit where credit is due, he's got one great scheme to accomplish claim jumping on a truly large scale.

Stealing the film in whatever scene he's in is Earle Hodgins playing a dude lawyer who likes to doubletalk in legalese. Nice Republic western for Allan Lane.
