Even for Ed Wood this is pretty bad
17 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dreadful short started in 1947 and left unfinished until 1995 when it was restored (God knows why), given narration and a music score and two songs (written by Wood's ex Dolores Fuller). The story has a cowboy (Ed Wood Jr. himself) being shot down in cold blood by Tex (Dan Nagel) for his money. Lem (Duke Moore) sees it from a distance. With the stolen money Tex marries Barbara (Ruth McCabe). Then it jumps to a year later. Barbara is treated like dirt by Tex. Lem secretly loves her (sigh)...but what can he do? It plays out in a very obvious way.

Deservedly obscure short. The direction is bad (no shock there), the acting is terrible and the narration is stupid. The music score and two songs are actually pretty good...way too good for dreck like this. Even at 23 minutes this is a sleep-inducing mess. Unless you're an Ed Wood completest you can safely skip this one.
