Sat the saddle well
9 July 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

My first acquaintance with Whip Wilson and his westerns begins with this one Crashing Thru. Wilson was Monogram's answer to Lash LaRue and Andy Clyde who had just finished almost a decade as one of Hopalong Cassidy's sidekicks plays the sidekick part here. No accident that Clyde is remembered for his Hoppy westerns.

Wilson sat the saddle well, looked good but had zero personality. No wonder his westerns have not stood the test of time. In this one he plays a Wells Fargo agent taking over where a partner who was killed in a stagecoach holdup. Wilson pretends to be a masked rider who is functioning as an old west Robin Hood to get the goods on the villains who are typical western villains who do everything from forgery, to rustling, to murder.

Nothing memorable here.
