Mickey Rooney, Robert Preston, and Robert Stack bring some pleasure in My Outlaw Brother
In searching for Mickey Rooney movies on YouTube to watch in chronological order, I stumbled into this western he made independently as his M-G-M contract was winding down. He plays an easterner looking for his brother who's revealed to be the title character. He's played by Robert Stack, years before his famous role as Elliot Ness on the TV show "The Untouchables". Robert Preston, years before his iconic role in the musical "The Music Man, is the Texas ranger helping Rooney along. I'll just now say this was quite an entertaining oater. Some funny stuff from Rooney but it's also quite serious when it needs to be. The leading lady is Wanda Hendrix as a senorita who Stack tries to posses. She'd eventually marry his brother in real life but only for a few years. Anyway, My Outlaw Brother is worth a look for fans of any of the above players.
