Storyline

Made during the period when Clayton Moore had been replaced on the Lone Ranger television series by John Hart, but actually appears to have been made during the dawn of the sound era because of the excessive amounts of stock footage culled from earlier westerns made by producer Edward Finney, who never let much film from his productions be used only once, which accounts for some Monogram stock with Tex Ritter and Tris Coffin. Story concerns the efforts of Buffalo Bill to protect the Indian's land from a gang who want to get the gold buried there. The outlaws disguise themselves as Indians and raid and plunder the settlers in order to blame the tribe. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Skills Of A Great Scout Not Needed
15 July 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When you think about it for all his working life before he became a show business celebrity, William Frederick Cody was always in Tomahawk Territory. This film, Buffalo Bill In Tomahawk Territory stars Clayton Moore on hiatus from the Lone Ranger because of a contract dispute.

You wouldn't think that though with Moore decked out in a white cowboy suit, two gun rig, a white horse all the paraphernalia of the Lone Ranger. Instead of a mask, Moore' wearing a bushy mustache long hair and a goatee as per Buffalo Bill. Cody is even given a sidekick in Slim Andrews, a more loquacious one than Tonto.

As per a treaty with the Sioux, Moore's delivering some cattle to the reservation. But some greedy white folks have discovered and want to start an Indian War to get the Sioux kicked off. They're even going around disguised as Indians attacking army and civilian targets.

When they scatter the cattle Moore does what gave him his nickname, although why Indians could not have hunted their own buffalo is beyond me. What gives these renegade whites away to Moore is hardly rocket science that would have called for the skills of a great scout. Stuff like these people riding shod horses, a frontier kid could have observed that one.

Moore barely looked away from home as he plays Buffalo Bill in the same straight arrow tradition as the Lone Ranger. But there are too many obvious flaws in this one, even the kids would have spotted them.
