Rustling in time of war

4/10
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
27 June 2013

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.

Rocky Lane rides off into the sunset ........

4/10
Author: revdrcac from United States

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 ........!
