Storyline

If the definition of a B-Western series is that of a number of films made by the same production company or studio starring the same actor, then this film qualifies as the last of the B-western series films made for theatre distribution, although there were many cheap-jack B-westerns made after "Two Guns and Badge".(Check out Johnny Carpenter, Sam Katzman and the TV listings from 1954 to the present.) This was also the last theatre-released film directed by the prolific Lewis D. Collins, whose early 25-year career was primarily Poverty Row non-westerns in the 30's, a series of Jack Holt action-adventure films for producer Larry Darmour and Columbia (a high water mark relative speaking), and westerns, serials and some musical shorts in the 40s, and nearly all westerns in the 50s. His long-time friend, actor Lyle Talbot, said that Lew Collins was the only man in Hollywood that had less use for horses than he (Talbot) did, so...

Last of the B-Westerns .........
22 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wayne Morris stars in this interesting B-western from 1954. Morris was a charismatic actor and WWII hero, whose career was limited mostly to B-movies. In this film, he is an outlaw mistaken for a hired gunman, who cleans up a nest of bad-guys and saves the day. He eventually becomes a different kind of man due to his duty and the love of a good woman.

Western veteran Roy Barcroft also appear in this well-paced oater. Morris was a fine actor and worked well in western settings. Fans of the genre should enjoy this one, which was arguably the last of the B-Western flicks. Happy Trails !!
