A bad, bad man.....
27 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lance Regan (Douglas Evans) is a bad, bad man.

This is obvious from the outset: not only does he sport a thin moustache - a B western giveaway if ever there was one - but he refuses to be photographed by comic sidekick Cannonball Taylor and, horror of horrors, actually sneers a little as Jimmy Wakely sings his first number.

No surprise then that, later in the movie, he ill-treats a horse and gets a whopping from Jimmy for his trouble.

There are chases, fist fights and shoot-outs: Jimmy sings three songs and Cannonball falls into the horse trough.

As a bonus there's a good performance from Claire Whitney as wicked Regan's blackmail victim: she really acts! I liked it very much.
