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.

Rocky Lane rides off into the sunset ........
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the last of Rocky Lane's features, the former Red Ryder star takes on war-time cattle rustlers with the help of his long-time sidekick , Nugget. With solid detective work and a few lucky breaks, Lane moves to save the day and foil the plans of the greedy sidewinders......

Lane was never totally convincing as a western hero, often seeming wooden and distant. In this film, he turns in another average performance, with few noteworthy scenes.

The script and casting here are adequate, nothing more. Fans of this type of western programmer may find it moderately entertaining... Others, Beware ........!
