The cattle that are being rustled apparently vanish as no one is able to find them. But Rocky Lane, in his last B western, is on the job and he is assisted as usual by Nugget Clark.

Storyline

In the last of the "Rocky" Lane series, federal marshal "Rocky" Lane (Allan Lane) saddles up "Black Jack" (Black Jack) and heads for the Mexican border to investigate cattle rustling during the Spanish-American War. He gets a job with feed-merchant Nugget Clark (Eddy Waller), and discovers that Nugget's wizened little helper,Josh Bailey (Edward Clark0, has been giving cattle shipment information to the town dentist, Mason "Doc" Ramsey ('Alden 'Stephen' Chase'), who is the secret leader of the rustlers headed by Floyd Garnett (Roy Barcroft). When Ramsey and Garnett steal some of Nugget's cattle feed, Rocky follows them to their hideout through a waterfall into a hidden valley (El Paso is overrun with such scenic delights.) The outlaws have kidnapped Alice Clark (Phyllis Coates) and Rocky captures Ramsey after Garnett is killed in a gun battle. Alice is rescued, the stolen cattle are recovered and Rocky moves on to his next film assignment, which was more than five years later when he ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Rustling in time of war
27 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Allan Lane wound up his movie career as a cowboy hero going undercover as a clerk in Eddy Waller's store where he both romances Phyllis Coates and works to find out who is behind some cattle rustling. Not ordinary cattle rustling mind you, but rustling in time of the Spanish American War, cattle intended to be army beef for the troops in Cuba. Lane's an army captain working undercover.

I might have rated El Paso Stampede a bit higher but for the ridiculous sight of Lane behind a store counter with six guns, but no storekeeper's apron. I'll bet the Saturday matinée kids thought it was ludicrous as well.

Edward Clark turns in an interesting performance as another clerk who is a petty crook and a real weasel giving information to the head of the rustlers. You'll be amused at who the boss really is.

A below average western for Lane to end his career as a cowboy hero in the Republic stable.
