Tulliver Family Values
20 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The team of James Ellison and Russell Hayden and their stock company star in Marshal of Heldorado for Lippert Pictures. In this one Jimmy Ellison poses as an eastern dude to bring in the notorious Tulliver Brothers who are terrorizing a local town. Actually Ellison is of course a US Marshal and a deadly shot.

Which he doesn't need in dispatching the first two Tullivers who obligingly shoot themselves, but with Hayden's bragging help it does give Ellison a reputation of a man to be feared.

All the Ellison/Hayden films for Lippert were remakes of other poverty row westerns in this case one that starred Bob Steele. I think Bob's version is slightly better because Hayden's role was kind of shoehorned into the film.
