Storyline

Duke, Pete and Spence and later ambush ex-Ranger Johnny Mack Brown and steal his horse. In Silver Springs, town banker Fred Allison is forced to borrow heavily from livery stable owner Ed Hooper to make good the hold-up losses. Johnny jumps Duke, gets a confession out of him that reveals Hooper as the gang leader, and sets out after Spence and receivers his stolen horse. He confronts Hooper, but is thrown in jail by an outlaw posing as a Marshal. Cinthy Allison recognizes the fake Marshal, and Hooper makes a break, with Johnny giving chase.

From Johnny's "plump" period.....
4 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The crooks are robbing the stagecoaches - they also steal Johnny Mack Brown's horse, Rebel.

As this one was made in 1951 - during Johnny's "plump" period - I suspect Rebel may not have minded too much! No comic sidekick this time out and, for once, Johnny doesn't play a roving marshal - just a retired roving marshal.

Leading lady Phyllis Coates has little to do but stand around smiling. The bad guys - including veteran villains House Peters Jr.,John Merton and Lee Roberts - are so obviously bad that one wonders how the good townsfolk couldn't see through them.

All good undemanding fun!
