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.

A bit more violent than the usual B-western....and I'm cool with that.
14 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film begins with Tim O'Neil (Tim McCoy) arriving back in town after spending a lot time on the road. He's expecting to marry his girl and settle down. However, there are two huge surprises--his brother, the Sheriff, was murdered and the Harmons are not particularly friendly...and his fiancé, Myra Harmon, isn't so keen on getting married. It isn't that they have anything against's that the family patriarch is working, in a way, with cattle rustlers. He's not a bad guy, but the evil leader of the 'Cattlemen's Association', Kramer, is blackmailing him. So, it's up to the nice-guy hero, Tim, to right rights, kick butt and make the west wonderful once again.

I have always liked Tim McCoy more than most B-western stars. He's not as flashy, was certainly no 'pretty boy', didn't sing AND was a real life cowboy and sharpshooter. So, when you see McCoy with his odd flourish as he shoots, it's because he really DID know how to shoot. This also made his shooting scenes very realistic and violent...and I really loved these scenes. Overall, a somewhat standard story but very well done.
