User Reviews

Another one of Resolute's soap-opera westerns.

The film was the first of a proposed series of six set to star Rex Bell, Ruth Mix and Buzz Barton for the 1934-35 production season(September through August) and was to be followed by "Gunsmoke", "Rodeo Rustlers" "Roped", "Riders of the Law" and "The Lumber Hawk" as the announced titles. But only three more were actually filmed; "Gun Fire". "Fighting Pioneers" and "Saddle Aces" before Resolute closed shop. Mannon/Resolute also announced, at the same time of the proposed six Bell-Mix-Barton westerns, that "Sky Fighters"---The Greatest Air Serial Ever Filmed" was "in preparation, but those 12 episodes and two of the Bell-Mix-Barton westerns never saw the light of day.
