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>

Tim Holt was Good
23 March 2002 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Though he did fine work in major films by Welles and Huston, Tim Holt's true calling was in the Western. His RKO series, interrupted by World War II, extended to 1952, proving his lasting appeal and his many capabilities. THUNDER MOUNTAIN is fairly typical, though the format would still be upgraded through the next few years. Tim's ranch is up for auction, though he has the payment; crooked Sheriff Harry Harvey won't take it. Main bad guy Harry Carson (always great, bushy mustache and all) wants the ranch for its railroad right of way. The Hayden-Jorch feud's still raging, so Carson kills Steve Brodie a member of the Jorch clan, and frames Holt (a Hayden) into it. Tim breaks jail, a top notch gun battle ensues. Carson's captured, and Tim's got Martha Hyer. All this takes place in an excitingly paced 59 minutes, 16 less than Tom Hanks spent on that damn island in CAST AWAY last year, talkin' to a volleyball or something. The oldies are best, and when Tim Holt's in 'em, they're better than that. He gave me a lot of entertaining days at the movies when I was a kid; and as a 63 year old kid, he still does so, in late nite TV viewings on the W
