Freight line robbers
28 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Once again Allan Lane is a US Marshal going undercover once again to save Eddy Waller from being preyed on by some despicable outlaws. The outlaw gang whose chief henchman is perennial western villain Roy Barcroft who is robbing Waller's freighting line with regularity and inside information. Of course that's supplied by the big boss.

The key to Lane rounding up this outlaw gang is young Michael Hall best known for being Fredric March and Myrna Loy's son in The Best Years Of Our Lives. He's a kid who took up with this gang because of his older brother who got a bullet in the back courtesy of Barcroft. When he's convinced the outlaws are not his friends, Hall proves invaluable to Lane even if he kind of messes things up in the end.

One of Allan Lane's better Saturday Matinée horse operas with a good story and believable characters.
