Not so simple extradition
22 September 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Frontier Marshals, PRC's cowboy hero trio are in Oklahoma Territory from Texas to bring in a prisoner. It sounds like a simple extradition case. But when they arrive at their destination they look around and see a few familiar wanted outlaw faces walking around with no effort to apprehend them. And when Art Davis and Bill Boyd try to get the sheriff to arrest their guy, it's Boyd who winds up in the calaboose.

These upholders of law and order have to do a little extralegal thinking to set things right and get their man. Lee Powell is of course all business. But the other two who sing as well as fight, fight over the attentions of the saloon owner's daughter.

It all comes out in the end. For a PRC release Tumbleweed Trail is practically Citizen Kane. But no tumbleweeds sighted.
