Former gridiron star Johnny Mack Brown appears in this fast-paced western tale of greed and violence. Brown, a US Marshal,is called upon to bust up a ring of greedy galoots with their sights on a booming stage business. Familiar & prolific western character actor Myron Healey co-stars as the stage owner.
These types of B-western films were fairly routine, but here Brown was amiable, easy-going and performed his action scenes very well. His career lasted for over 3 decades, and this oater was a good example of the type of film that made him a star of this great genre.
I recommend this programmer to all fans of the classic B-westerns. It ain't Shakespeare, but it is a fun shoot-em up !
