Another Fine Tim Holt B Western
14 November 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is another of the good B Westerns that Tim Holt did for RKO from when he took over the franchise about 1940 through 1952, with a pause during World War Two for Air Force service. Besides the usual B+ values, including good comic relief by series sidekick Richard Martin, we get a slightly off-kilter performance by Hugh Beaumont (best known as the father on "Leave it to Beaver") as the chief bad guy and Gail Davis as the female lead for this episode -- usually this series featured competent and strong-willed female characters. I must say that I am particularly impressed by Miss Davis' performance here. Judging by her IMDb resume, she seems to have had a fairly undistinguished career. But given the strong writing in this movie, it's likely she was not so well served elsewhere.
