Don Roberto You Have A Lovely Daughter
9 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Jack Hoxie and Julian Rivero ride into town where night-riders have been terrorizing the local ranchers. They get jobs with one of them Jack Bower has a lovely daughter in Hilda Moreno.

Their reputations as gunfighters proceed them and they get accused of some murder and some rustling not necessarily in that order. But any true devotee of the B western can tell you within 10 minutes as to who the mastermind will turn out to be.

Though the film has a bit of humor to it, mostly because of Rivero, it was one of those that signaled the end of Hoxie's career as a movie cowboy. He was having trouble transitioning to sound and this picture demonstrates he was having dialog trouble.
