Of all the men that gained fame from the "B" western genre, William Elliott was one of the more talented actors. He broke in playing smaller roles in "A" pictures with the likes of Cagney and Bogart. This was his first venture at a starring role in a higher budget western; he had just finished up starring in about twenty Red Rider serials. Fans of the old western genre will see a marked similarity to the plot line of Roy Rogers' "The Carson City Kid". Indeed, the traitorous "sidekick" in both features is named Laramie, in here portrayed by the ominous Jack LaRue, and Frank McDonald in CC Kid. There was a higher budget on this film however, more renown actors were used, and the plot more involved. While this isn't my favorite of Elliott's "A" features, it is nonetheless entertaining and a worthwhile view.
