Amusing low-budget burlesque of western movies
14 February 2002 | by (Tumwater, Washington) – See all my reviews

Jiggs, Maggie, and daughter Nora head west to the town of Gower Gulch after Maggie inherits a gold mine from Grandpa MacGillacuddy. Maggie's search for her grandfather's gold (assisted somewhat ineffectually by the old man's ghost), is opposed by outlaw Snake Bite Carter, who is acting under the direction of the Big Boss. Meanwhile, Jiggs sends a telegram to Dinty Moore that results in something of a gold rush by the old gang, and Dinty tags along to take possession of Gower Gulch's abandoned saloon. Nora is wooed by Snake Bite's kid brother, Bob Carter, who also turns out to be working for the Big Boss. The film takes a surprise turn at the end when the identity of the Big Boss is revealed. Not a great film, but an amusing burlesque of western movies that should appeal to fans of the classic comic strip.

Sadly, this film marked the end of the Monogram series, as Joe Yule died of a heart attack shortly after shooting was completed.
