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>

So-so Western about the mythical hero taking on Indians and swindlers
1 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

The scout Buffalo Bill ( Clayton Moore of Lone Ranger ) and his partner named Cactus ( Slim Andrews , a colleague similar to Tonto ) help some wagon covered being beset by Sioux natives and discover that they are soldiers posing as women . But the attackers are the Blake's hoodlums and then takes places an Indian uprising on the horizon . Blake ( Eddie Phillips ) is an ambitious villain who attempts to rob the gold from Tomahawk territory whose chief is White Cloud (Chief Yowlachie) and Black Hawk ( Chief Thundercloud ). Buffalo and Cactus are supported by the soldiers from Headquarter Fort Randall . As Bill finds land swindlers pitting Indians against ranchers in this fictionalized account of the life of the early career of the famous frontier hunter .

This is a passionless and light chronicle of the noted frontier explorer and Buffalo's life . Factually something of a disgrace , but emotionally right on the mark and there's precious little action . The comic relief is in charge of Buffalo's helper played by Andrews . Furthermore , songs sung by The Broome Brothers as the classic ¨Oh Susana ¨ . Director portrays the old westerner in adventurer style without critical light or truthful . It preserves the myth of a great hero with some pursuits , action and stirring staged final . However , it contains little interest here with various stock shots of American Buffalos and about Indian hamlets . Released by United Artists Corporation and propaganda message ending that says : ¨ Buy defense bonds ¨ . The film is regularly directed by Bernard Ray or Raymond Johnson . He's an expert Western filmmaker with various titles in this genre .

Other films about Buffalo Bill and much better are the followings : ¨Buffalo Bill ¨(44) by William A Wellman with Joel McCrea and Mauren O'Hara ; ¨ Buffalo Bill rides again ¨ (1947 ) by the the same director Bernard Ray with Richard Arlen and ¨Buffalo Bill and the Indians ¨(76 ) by Robert Altman with Paul Newman and Will Sampson .
