Eddie saves the orphans
17 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

No cowboy hero is going to stand for a girl and her little brother being tossed off their ranch. That's the situation that Eddie Dean and sidekick Roscoe Ates have on their hands in Tumbleweed Trail.

The two are in the area to meet up with the father of the two aforementioned persons when they hear that he's missing and presumed dead and his half brother Bob Duncan has a will naming him sole heir and he's now tossing them out of their home. Snidely Whiplash could not have done it in a nastier fashion. Shirley Patterson and Johnny McGovern have to trust in Dean and Ates and you know it will come out right in the end.

Tumbling Tumbleweeds is an easy to take B western from the PRC company which did not do as much in production values as Republic did. Eddie Dean sings some nice songs which are the best part of the film.
