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.
