Storyline

Lavinia White and her young brother Chad are shunned by the townspeople of Twin Wells because their father Tom is serving the last part of a long prison sentence for robbing the Rysen Company of $100,000. Their only friends are Doc Meadowlark and Pat Garrett, who is employed by the Rysen Transportation Company. When released, Tom is determined to return the money to its rightful owners over the objections of Jim Judd. Judd threatens harm to Chad and forces Lavinia to aid him, under the same threat against Chad, in the stick-up of the stage in which Tom is returning to Twin Wells with the money. Pat arrives and Judd and the girl escape without the money. The money is returned and Tom prepares to settle down and make amends for the past. Judd conspires with Elias Dunkenscold, the Rysen office manager, to steal the money and frame it on Tom. In a chase, Sheriff Wilson is shot but swears Pat in as a deputy before he dies. He has to jail Tom and Lavinia has to keep quiet as the outlaws ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A couple of scarlet letters
8 July 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Though it is not their fault Jeff Donnell and her brother Tommy Ivo are shunned by their townspeople as surely as Hester Prynne was in The Scarlet Letter for a robbery that their father John Gallaudet committed in Outcasts Of The Trail. The only friends that Donnell and Ivo have are Monte Hale and Paul Hurst. Hale is playing Pat Garrett in the days before he became famous shooting down Billy the Kid.

Gallaudet took the rap alone covering for partners Milton Parson and Roy Barcroft. Gallaudet hid the money and now wants to turn it back to the express company, but Parsons and Bancroft have other ideas.

This is a pleasant B western from that premier factory of them, Republic Pictures. Monte Hale was a good western hero who sad to say was never able to climb out of that mold. He also was not fortunate enough to get into television where the B western went during the 1950s. Paul Hurst who did a series of westerns with Hale as a sidekick certainly has a lot of major films in his resume including some outstanding westerns like The Oxbow Incident and The Angel And The Badman.

This film will give you a good idea of the appeal Monte Hale had as a cowboy hero that sadly did not last into television.
