Storyline

Carson City is so overrun by outlaws that Nugget Clark, owner of a wagon-train freight line which carries gold from the nearby mines, is about to give up his business because his wagons never reach their destination with the cargo intact. "Razor" Pool, the gang's leader, has henchman Starkey, pose as a an old-time outlaw known as "Faro" Jack. The real "Faro" Jack, now reformed and known as Tom Drew, takes the job of sheriff, and Pool plans to frame him for the robberies. Insurance investigator "Rocky" Lane arrives in Carson City and soon figures out Drew's dilemma and the gang's scheme to discredit him. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Return Of Fargo Jack
9 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Allan Lane in this film is an agent for an express company worried about a rash of robberies perpetrated against Eddy Waller's freighting line. The blame is being pinned on old time outlaw Fargo Jack who had dropped out of sight.

That however is a clever ruse being used by the real outlaw leader who has learned that the local sheriff is the real Fargo Jack living peacefully and quietly and most of all anonymously with his daughter. The outlaw leader has one of his henchmen dress as Fargo Jack and use some of the mannerisms that Fargo Jack was known for. It fools everyone except of course Rocky Lane.

I haven't mentioned any cast members in this save Lane and Waller because the outlaw leader's occupation is an unusual one for an outlaw leader in B westerns. As for the rest of the film, a lot of good riding and shooting. Who wants more for this kind of film and an interesting story as well.
