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.See more »

Solid Tim McCoy Western, 14 April 2015
Author: boblipton from New York City

This Tim McCoy western shows the Columbia B western unit at its best, with a fine script by Ford Beebe and the impeccable cinematography of Benjamin Kline.

Kline was an old hand at westerns. He was the Director of Photography on a couple of Tom Mix westerns during his peak in the early 1920s and continued working through 1972 -- his last credit was for a TV western movie. In between he rarely worked in the As, but turned in solid work on everything he worked on, from the Three Stooges to a lot of television work. Notice, if you will, the dramatic side lighting here -- a forerunner of Film Noir camera-work.

Ford Beebe's script offers some interesting, conflicted roles to Frank Sheridan and Robert Allen. If director David Selman seems more comfortable directing the visuals than the dialogue, the result is still an entertaining hour of western action with a locked-room puzzle thrown in.
