Trivia

One of over 100 Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, which marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Goofs

In the bunkhouse scene, the inexperienced Wayne is standing too close to Wallace MacDonald and Tim Mcoy. When MacDnald moves his head unexpectedly, his hat brim bangs right in Wayne's right eye. Wayne is momentarily stunned but continues on with the scene, which was evidently not reshot. See more »

'Texas' Grant: Guess again, Old Timer. My name's not Jim Rawlings and I'm not back from any grave
Hefty - the Bartender: Do you, do you mean to tell me, you ain't Jim Rawlings of the Diamond R who disappeared five years ago?
'Texas' Grant: Well that's what I'm telling ya. My name's Grant, Texas Grant. What's yours?
Hefty - the Bartender: Oh, well the folks round here call me 'Hefty'. I don't know why. Maybe it's on account of my size

entertaining and less primitive than most of the 30's westerns.
20 August 2006 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

Tim McCoy rides into town and everybody starts calling him Jim. It seems he is so similar, that the barman asks him to pretend to be Jim. By doing so he gets all the bad guys against him. When he later goes to Jim's ranch even Jim's wife has a hard time to accept the fact that he is not her husband. He starts administering her ranch, from where a lot of cattle is stolen, and the only cowboy of the ranch that is friendly to him is John Wayne. If you can accept the basic point of this story that two men can be so alike (without being twin brothers), this is an entertaining film, less primitive than most of the westerns of the early thirties. It is interesting to see here how John Wayne had in him all that it took to be a great star.
