Storyline

Eddie Dean and Soapy Jones foil an attempted stagecoach holdup designed to murder Circuit Judge Hilton, bound for Rawhide to restore law and order. The Judge and the other passenger, Parson Trimble, decide to put up at the ranch owned by Sherry Lynn, Eddie's sweetheart, and her mother Ma Lynn. They are waylaid again, but the outlaws are driven off, and Nevada, an undercover man for the Judge, allows one of captured men to escape so he can follow him to the gang hideout. The Judge also deputizes Eddie. Nevada gets in with the gang, led by Duke and Dad Dillon, and is given the assignment to kill the Judge, whose first act in Rawhide was to close Duke's saloon and fire the city manager, Colonel Blake, a hireling of the Dillons. Eddie, Nevada and Soapy find evidence at the Dillon mine that they have been stealing government gold shipments. Colonel Blake is preparing to skip town and reveals to Sherry and saloon-girl Lola, Duke's girlfriend, that Duke is really the son of Judge Hilton, ...

Instantly Forgettable
17 October 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Eddie Dean and his sidekick Soapy Jones (any relation to Fuzzy Jones?) foil an assassination attempt against a circuit judge being sent to clean up the outlaws' dirty town, leading to Eddie's recruitment into the judge's team of crime fighters.

This time around, Producers Releasing Corporation seems to have spent all it's budget on making the picture in color and not enough on the script or director, as this is too talky with not enough action.

The only thing in this slow moving film that works is the handful of musical interludes featuring Eddie singing, as he was a pretty bland action star and this movie is instantly forgettable.
