Did You Know?


One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Okay...just okay.
20 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Tim McCoy was a better than average B-western least to me. Unlike many of the later, prettier cowboys who liked to sing and probably never even saw a horse or shot a gun before they made their first film, McCoy had worked as a cowboy, traveled the world as a champion trick shooter and was a colonel...yes a colonel! Because of this, I found him much more believable and I usually enjoy his films. This being said, however, there wasn't a whole lot I loved or hated about this particular film. It was just okay in every way.

In "The Westerner", Tim's major nemesis is Bob, the senator's son (Joe Sawyer). He wants the same girl as Tim and is just itching for a showdown. This only happens near the end...and that is when a weird twist that necessitates Tim breaking out of jail in order to prove his innocence (a common cliché).

A mildly interesting story and a few weird twists, this one is just okay.
