Padding the outlaw resume
30 June 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Tom Keene plays a US Deputy Marshal undercover with a pair of raffish sidekicks Julian Rivero and Ernie Adams who sign on to William Welsh's ranch to find out who's been doing the cattle rustling. Rochelle Hudson is Welsh's daughter and she kind of likes Keene. But the next door neighboring ranch is run by Marie Wells who's boss lady of the rustlers and the ranch is a blind.

In fact Keene's cover is nearly blown when he drops his badge. Why would he not store the badge in a safe place until needed is a mystery best explained in a seance with the writers.

A lot of the comedy is Falstaff like as Rivero and Adams who don't know they've hooked up with a marshal keep padding their outlaw resume. They can be pretty funny at times.

Decent horse opera for the front row kids of 1932.
