As usual this entry in the Rocky Lane Series features lots of action and a higher quality feel then might be expected from the limited budget. A lot of the credit on the early Rocky Lanes has to to go to writer Bob Williams who did ten in the series. Williams added unique twists and angles to his scripts not often seen in B-Westerns. While this is one of his more straight-forward efforts, he uses the mistaken identity theme to move the action oriented, one-upsmanship plot along.
Roy Barcroft who plays Henchman Sanders is at his vile back-shooting best in this one. If anybody wonders why Barcroft is considered the iconic B-Western Bad Guy check out Oklahoma Badlands. Committing crimes too numerous to mention, never is Roy better than when he is playing the remorseless, wisecracking action-heavy.
Worth watching if you have an extra 59 minutes.
