Storyline

"Thunder Mountain" is the first of Tim Holt's 29 postwar westerns spread over the five year period from June, 1947 to June, 1952. While the film has one Zane Grey title, it has more elements in it from Grey's "To the Last Man" than from Grey's "Thunder Mountain", a not uncommon practice by RKO when dealing with the works of (Zane Grey). This one had Marvin Hayden(Tim Holt) returning to his Arizona ranch and finding it about to be sold for taxes. It has been in charge of his Mexican-Irish friend Chito Rafferty (Richard Martin). Local saloon-keeper Trimble Carson (Harry Woods), his friend Johnny Blue (Tom Keene) and Sheriff Bagley (Harry Harvey) have information that the ranch is to be the site of a dam and plot to obtain it. Plus, neighboring ranchers Ellen Jorth (Martha Hyer) and her brothers, Chick (Steve Brodie) and Lee (Robert Clarke), are antagonistic toward Hayden because of an old family feud between the Jorths and Haydens. Ellen and Hayden meet while looking for boundary ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

60 minutes of action, galloping horses and entertainment
4 March 2007 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When I was a kid, I remember somebody telling me Tim Holt's westerns were great. I never had a chance to see them, but that changed when I saw Thunder Mountain a couple of days ago. I was impressed how they were able to put together in 60 minutes a very good western story (written by Zane Grey), full of action and comings and goings in galloping horses. It might seem like many of the thousands of low budgeted westerns of the forties and early fifties but somehow here it comes out better. There is a good sidekick, Chitto Rafferty, quite a leading lady (a very young Martha Hyer) and an excellent Jason Robards Sr. as an alcoholic lawyer.
