Gender bending
6 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A slight bit of gender bending humor is part of this Allan Lane western Oklahoma Badlands. Lane is the best friend of a rancher who is murdered by Roy Barcroft who is playing his normal role, the chief henchman who handles the rough stuff for the big boss brains of the outfit.

The humor revolves around the last surviving member of the Rawlins family Mildred Coles who plays Leslie Rawlins. When she witnesses Roy Barcroft nearly kill a fellow male passenger on a stagecoach assuming that the man was Leslie Rawlins, Rocky Lane decides to become Leslie Rawlins the better to ferret out the leader.

And Coles masquerades as her own housekeeper and has a running battle with foreman Eddy Waller.

Another good performance to watch out for is western perennial Earle Hodgins who plays a ham actor who the bad guys hire. It was an acting job that nearly bought him his last reviews.

One of Allan Lane's best Republic westerns.
