User Reviews

Run of the mill series action.
21 June 2016 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

This formula support picks up a little when it escapes the B movie urban setting (windowless newspaper office and boat-less docks) for the old west - where you can send telegrams from the hotel and the car loads of gangsters can pursue our fearless undercover reporter hero on his impressive white horse down the dirt roads.

Bell is better looking than most of his peer group and manages tall in the saddle. Acting is not his best number. Irene Rich's daughter doesn't have much to do as the heroine while wrangler Bud Osbourne gets a substantial part which he carries nicely.

Harry Frazer organizes it clearly enough but some of the action is unconvincing, relying on edits to suggest danger.
