Likable Tom Keene
31 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Cheyenne Kid's plot could've been lifted out of any one of John Wayne's 1930's Lone Star entries. Rodeo star Keene (who's actually quite likable) has an idiot buddy (s-s-s-tuttering Roscoe Ates) who acts as the glue that brings him and the pretty daughter of a mine owner whose about to be swindled out of his fortune together. Bullets fly and there's the typical 30's oater somewhat anachronistic presence of cars in the beginning of the movie (that all but disappear from the sets later on)--- but Keene actually shows some acting talent when his beloved horse gets shot dead from underneath him--- he cries! (and it's convincing!). The whole thing leaves you wondering why he wasn't a bigger cowboy star... I'm guessing his tendency to try something new with every movie killed off any hopes of developing a fan base in a genre where longevity meant adopting a fixed character (and the same outfit, not to mention the same horse) and running with it. This is an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so on a snowy Saturday morning.
