Will the real Shamrock stand up
20 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Another Bob Steele western called Alias John Law was the inspiration for this James Ellison/Russell Hayden stock company western for Lippert. This one has Jimmy the Shamrock going to visit his old mother on the ranch. Only she's died and a notorious outlaw played by stock company member John Cason is impersonating Ellison.

It's a scrub ranch by all appearances but Jim's a budding JR Ewing because oil's been discovered there and Cason is pulling a swindle. A little out of his ordinary line of work like bank robbery or cattle rustling, but it's a good con if he can get away with it.

Some humor is gotten out of the fact that Hayden has to play hard of hearing due to the late war which left him that way because he was too close to the artillery. Still it's a subpar western when compared to the same level product that Republic was putting out.
