Expert scout Tony Martin cleans up US Army corruption
20 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Frontier Scout" or "Quincannon, Frontier Scout" is one of a number of westerns and other b-movies produced by Howard W. Koch and sometimes under the direction of Lesley Salander. It is a decent western, in which the hero, played by Tony Martin, has lived with Indians and is sympathetic to them while seeing the savagery of the white man. In fact, the whole script has this perspective, for several US Army or cavalry soldiers are so corrupt that they are selling excellent repeating rifles to the Arapahoes. Martin is commissioned by Morris Ankrum to investigate and clean up this mess. Martin, after falling for Peggie Castle, agrees to do this on his terms. His crew consists of capable actor John Bromfield and John Doucette, whom movie fans of that era will recognize as a very busy supporting actor. Born in Brockton, he never lost his Massachusetts or Boston accent.

The script has some nice touches. Keeping in mind that it is an unpretentious and low-budget b-western, yet in color and filmed widescreen with a decent script, the western fan could do a lot worse than this one, even if Tony Martin is no Gary Cooper.
