Storyline

Cattlemen use Alamo Pass in order to get their cattle to market. A gang has taken it over and charges a toll to go through it. When one rancher doesn't have enough money to pay the toll, he winds up dead. A local rancher, Bill Bowers, investigates the killing, but his neighbor and rival Molly Spellman decides to take her cattle around the pass instead of through it to avoid the toll. The gangsters kidnap her, and Bill gathers the other ranchers in the area for a final showdown with the gang. Written by frankfob2@myway.com

Brazen Outlaws With Chutzpah
23 January 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

How fortunate that a man named William Cody got to be a B picture cowboy hero. But I'm not sure if he ever actually played Buffalo Bill to whom he was no relation.

Cody stars in this film for a real poverty row outfit called Aywon Pictures and I will say this for Western Racketeers, it has some of the most brazen outlaws ever put on film. These guys have set up shop at a place called Alamo Pass where the ranchers have to drive their cattle to market. It's government land, but these guys just decide to charge extortionate tolls to pass through land they have no claim on in any event.

It seems to me all that is required here is for the sheriff to just round up a posse and fight it out which is what it comes to in the end anyway. There is some mystery as to who the boss is, but any viewer of B westerns should figure that out.

These outlaws have chutzpah so it takes a hero with same to put them out of business. No reason to go out of your way to see Western Racketeers.
