Storyline

Out-of-work cowboys Kansas Jones and Chito Rafferty are offered jobs at pretty Dusty Willis' ranch after saving her from a beating by saloon owner Clint Burrows. Dusty's good-hearted but weak-willed brother Harry, adding to his $3000 gambling debt to Willis, reluctantly agrees to pay it off by allowing the Ringo Kid, Burrows' vicious hired gun, to rustle cattle from his sister's ranch. Kansas intervenes, deters the rustlers and persuades Harry to confess his involvement to Dusty. Kansas, sent into town by Dusty to pay off Harry's debts, suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the law, wrongly accused of murder and must rely on Dusty's belief in his innocence for his salvation.

Solid Saturday Fare
12 July 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Pretty good Holt-Martin oater. The boys are out to rescue ranchers White and Clarke from the clutches of bad guys Tyler and Hadley, that is, as long as they don't get arrested for murder first. This is a studio production (RKO), which means better resources than for most matinée Westerns. This shows up in the casting and locations. Hadley and Tyler make better bad guys than usual, though the rail-thin Tyler appears affected by the rheumatoid arthritis that troubled his later career. Also, easy-on-the-eyes White makes a good, gritty ranch boss, while the piney Big Bear locations east of LA provide welcome contrast to the familiar LA scrublands. Nothing special here, just solid Saturday afternoon entertainment, with some non-buffoonish humor smoothly added to the mix.
