Storyline

Rancher Rex Allen captures a bandit, Delgado, a henchman for crooked Sheriff Webb and saloon owner Mike, who run the town to suit themselves, but Rex forces the sheriff to jail Delgado. When Marge, who runs the town newspaper tells Rex she is afraid to attack the sheriff in print, Rex decides to run for sheriff. Webb and Mike frame Rex and his partner Slim on a murder charge and they are jailed. The sheriff arranges for them to escape but not before he has posted three gunmen outside the jail to kill Rex and Slim as they escape. For animal fans or those who prefer to know the actual credits shown on a film, "Koko, the Miracle Horse" is billed above the title with Rex Allen, and is also billed 9th (following Julian Rivero) in the cast credits.

Crooked Arrangement
20 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Shadows Of Tombstone finds Rex Allen with a sheriff's posse looking for the outlaw who rustled his horses. Little does he realize at the beginning that the sheriff Emory Parnell is actually the boss of outlaw Ric Roman who did the rustling.

In fact Parnell's got a crooked arrangement with saloon owner Roy Barcroft and they run and loot the town and are involved in all kinds of criminal enterprises. The local newspaper run by Jeanne Cooper finds it healthier and better to look the other way. But Jeanne and her printer Slim Pickens come around to Rex's way of thinking.

In the short running time of Shadows Of Tombstone, a lot of western action gets packed in. Rex's singing gets kind of short changed here, but I'm sure the front row Saturday matinée kids didn't complain.

Fans of the Arizona Cowboy Rex Allen will not complain.
