It's Where The Loot Is
12 July 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Deadwood Pass is both the title and scene of the action of this Tom Tyler western. Tom's a postal inspector on the trail of a notorious outlaw 'The Hawk' who has escaped from state prison. It is thought that the real Hawk played by western regular Bud Osborne would make for Deadwood Pass where it is rumored he hid a fortune in stolen bonds that he had robbed.

But using the pass as his headquarters is the notorious Butch Cassidy and his gang without the Sundance Kid. Played by Slim Whittaker, Butch ain't letting nobody in his stronghold lest it be the real Hawk. And we know him by his Hawk tattoo on his right wrist.

So Tyler gets a hawk tattoo on his right wrist, but the question is can he keep up the disguise before the real article gets to Deadwood Pass.

This is a decent enough Poverty Row western, but it's known for an appearance in a small role by Carlota Monti, W.C. Fields's live-in girl friend. That might also give non-western fans a reason to look at this film.
