B-western sidekicks take the lead !
28 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fun, engaging western film from the heyday of the western programmer. Former Hopalong Cassidy sidekicks James Ellison and Russell Hayden star in this sagebrush tale of switched identities. Along the way court battles and gun play plague the stalwart heroes.

Ellison and Hayden are fine in the lead roles, although they always seemed more at ease in supporting roles. Raymond Hatton, the prolific cowboy character actor, is outstanding in a fun supporting performance. Hatton was equally capable of both drama and comedy, a rare trait in most western sidekicks.

These sort of films were designed to fill the bill at the Saturday matinées of the era. As such, this one was fun but not very innovative.
