Storyline

Texas Ranger Johnny Mack Brown (Johnny Mack Brown) is assigned to apprehend Walt Winslow (Dale Van Sickel), an escaped convict imprisoned for a $100,000 express robbery, from which the loot was never recovered. Brown finds him in fatally wounded in a stagecoach holdup by members of his former gang. Before he dies, he whispers something about "a pick' to Brown. Walt's honest brother, Dan Winslow ('James Ellison')is working in a bank in a nearby town. Mrs. Amelia Winslow (Barbara Woodell) arrives in town with a crude oil painting done by Walt. Kelvin (Terry Frost), a crooked deputy sheriff, frames Dan into giving the gang the combination to the safe, and the Sheriff (I. Stanford Jolley), is slain and Dan is jailed as a suspect. Then all involved realize that Walt was trying to say "a picture" as the clue to where the $1000,000 is buried. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Johnny Mack Brown tracks down the $$$$$
27 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Former gridiron star Johnny Mack Brown had a career in the B-westerns that spanned from the 1930's thru the 1950's and beyond. In this standard outing, Brown is sent by his superiors to track down some missing loot, to return it to those on the right side of the law. The plot and scripting are standard here, but Brown is always enjoyable in his western performances. He was older here, but still formidable.

Co-starring with Brown is James "Shamrock" Ellison of Hopalong Cassidy fame. Ellision is best-remembered as the sidekick to Hoppy in many 1930's westerns. Ellison never really made it to the top as a lead player, but he does a good job in this supporting role.

This is an average western programmer from an above-average cowboy legend......... Enjoy !
