Rocky Lane busts up a protection racket .....
22 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1950 B-western action film features the great Rocky Lane as a Marshal out to bust up an insurance protection racket. The outlaws & insurance men find that Rocky Lane is not a man to be trifled with ! As Lane cleans up the extortion plot, several surprises await the viewer!

Lane's performance here is action-filled and intense. While the story-line was a familiar one, it was pretty well presented. Several western vets appear here, including the wonderful George Chesboro. The plot seemed well-paced and action was plentiful.

Fans of the western programmers of Rocky Lane will enjoy this one -- others may find the film a bit dated by today's standards.
