Treasure Hunt
20 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Rocky Lane plays the title role in Sheriff Of Wichita and in this film the sheriff has an assignment to get an escaped prisoner back in custody. The prisoner is Clayton Moore who was an army lieutenant accused of a payroll robbery in which the commanding officer disappeared. The assumption was that the two planned to rob the army payroll and the commanding officer doublecrossed Moore and disappeared with the loot.

Of course Lane catches up with Moore, but Moore tells an interesting tale about receiving a letter from that presumed dead officer to meet him at a deserted army fort. Several other people get those same letters and they all meet up at the fort. Among those also being Roy Barcroft, a notorious outlaw one of whose gang was on the original patrol that was robbed. He dies and Barcroft deals himself into the treasure hunt,

This was one of Allan Lane's best features for Republic. It's a western with distinct noir and mystery elements in it and highly recommended.
