Trivia

The story takes place before the end of the 19th Century, in the era of unpaved roads, oil lamps, and cattle rustling, yet Kay Harris sports a strictly 1943 hairstyle, and contemporary 1943 clothing, including knee length skirts, shoulder pads, and high heeled shoes, at least fifty or more years ahead of their time.

Typical Fine Starrett Western
16 November 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A generic B Western title -- it was used for a Buck Jones oater in 1926 -- conceals an example of the fine Starrett B westerns from this era. He's an ex-Ranger in this one, called in to deal with cattle rustlers who are pinning the blame on Stanley Bride. Can Starrett find the baddies and get Stanley married to Kay Harris in less than an hour of screen time?

Starrett's westerns were always economically shot, but the folks at Columbia knew how to give value for money. Arthur Hunnicutt show up in his first foray in Hollywood as Starrett's sidekick. Johnny Luther's Ranh Boys sing several times; they offer a particularly nice version of "Walking the Floors Over You". The script makes sense (they didn't always in the Bs) and Benjamin Kline's camera-work is, as always, particularly nice, with some nice portrait shots -- I particularly liked the way he composed and shot the "Blue-Eyed Elaine" scene.

It's not the best of the Bs, but it is a solid effort. You can show this one to your friends without worrying.
