The haunted stagecoach station
10 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

If the writers at Republic Pictures had managed to tie up some loose ends in the story of this film this could have been one of the best Rocky Lane films that ever came out of that studio. As it is it's got some good things to recommend it.

Apparently there is some kind of elaborate scheme to rob a man traveling on the stagecoach with $50,000.00. Eddy Waller who flags down the coach and driver Roy Barcroft offers him a lift spoils the plans with an additional witness they hadn't bargained on. As it is one other passenger is killed and the intended victim disappears.

Fortunately Waller even with the dead body in a covered wagon he's driving to get away from a very spooky stagecoach station finds the Marshal From Amarillo and it's none other than Rocky Lane. Waller's story is so wacky that Lane actually takes him seriously and in due course gets to the bottom of the mystery.

Such reliable character players and western veterans like Elizabeth Risdon, Trevor Bardette, Denver Pyle and an unmasked Clayton Moore are in this film. The best thing that Marshal From Amarillo has going for it is a thrilling stagecoach chase scene, one of the best that Republic ever shot.

What the film needed was some kind of explanatory final scene as there were a lot of loose ends. But action fans will like Marshal From Amarillo.
