More Repeating Rifles being sold to those Indians
2 December 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The only reason I can think that Tony Martin did this film was to add a western to his film credit list. Maybe a nice cowboy ballad for him to sing would have improved Quincannon, Frontier Scout, but I doubt it. The film is collection of about every B western cliché under the sun.

The old some bad white people are selling guns to the Indian cliché is the plot premise here. Martin plays former officer now Indian scout Quincannon who quit the army because he was against killing Indians. Since that was their business that didn't leave him much room for career advancement.

But he's knowledgeable in frontier ways so Colonel Morris Ankrum hires him for a special assignment. As part of that assignment Peggie Castle comes along so Martin is interested.

Functioning as his Lucky and California to Martin's Hopalong Cassidy are John Bromfield and John Doucette. This probably could have been sold as a Hopalong Cassidy western. Also someone like Rory Calhoun or Robert Mitchum might have done something with the part. But Tony Martin looks like he wants to be back at the Copacabana opening night so much it's painful to watch.

Martin also rather stupidly confronts the villain after the villain gave himself away. That sets up all the action for the last third of the film.

I do love Tony Martin's singing, but this is one man who never should have tried to transition from musicals.
