Storyline

Bad seed Steve Taylor is pulled out of a saloon by his brother Tim after Steve kills cheating poker player Hoyt Parker in self defense. Steve, who's been financing his gambling addiction with money from his fiancée, is convinced by Tim to give himself up for trial. Found guilty without crucial testimony of his innocence by saloon girl Flora Trigby, who has fled to Mexico, the two brothers make their getaway to a secret hideout, where Tim heads out to find Flora. Tim's enthusiasm for protecting his brother lessens when he returns with Flora and learns someone matching Steve's description has held up the stage and killed passenger Nash Prescott, Parker's co-partner and Steve's chief accuser at the trial.

Trivia

Veteran actor Steve Brodie plays the brother of Tim Holt's character in this movie, a man falsely accused of murder who is defended valiantly by his brother, Tim. This is an ironic casting choice in view of the fact that Brodie played the villain in an earlier Tim Holt Western, Guns of Hate, in 1948 - one year before this movie. And yet, in spite of their blood relationship, Brodie's character in Brothers in the Saddle is just as selfish and impulsive as his bad guy character in the earlier film. See more »

More Dramatic Than Usual for a Matinée
31 January 2017 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

More dramatic entry than usual. Most of the action involves Tim's wayward brother Steve (Brodie) who seems caught in a vortex of crime that he either can't or won't get out of. Good thing both Brodie and Holt had feature film experience because their roles here require solid acting. And both come through in compelling fashion. Then too, Chito is Chito, often amusing but never in a clownish way.

There's plenty of flying fists, and enough broken furniture to stock a hotel. Not much hard riding, though Tim's clever mount Lightning gets him out of a tight jam—(was Lightning vying for Roy Rogers' Trigger for top Palomino). There's some fast shooting but not much—note that Tim actually aims his shot at movie's end, something matinée shootouts seldom bothered with. Note also that Tim puffs on a pipe at one point—the first time I think I've seen a matinée hero actually smoke. Anyway, some good LA-area scenery and a good story add up to a better than average Holt-Martin 60-minutes.

An "8" on the Matinée Scale.
