Rocky Lane in a typical B-western
21 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Allan "Rocky" Lane starred in dozens of B-westerns thru the early 1950's and is remembered today as the Red Ryder and the voice of Mr. Ed. This later entry in his film series finds Rocky again playing cowboy detective in an action-filled matinée outing.

The plot packs a lot of twists in a film that lasts less than an hour. Therefore, the character & plot development are a little shaky. Lane, with his square jaw and baritone voice saves the day, while accompanied by the always amusing sidekick, Nugget.

This type of film is enjoyable, when taken in context. B-westerns were designed mostly to entertain, not to rival the deep philosophical films of mainstream Hollywood. As such, it is an average Rocky Lane film.
