OK series western
28 May 2010 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

The opening reels mark this as a more ambitious than usual oater B, with effective staging and violence, like that of Hillyer's W.S. Hart films. The leader of the posse, who think our hero is a rustler, uses the hot iron on him. "There's a crooked brand on you now!"

The bar room scene, where Jones tracks down bad hat Wheeler Oakman who was responsible, while the saloon gambler watches, is worthy of a more ambitious production.

The girl rancher plot is less involving, though there is a good punch up between Buck and Ward Bond, where both actors do their own fighting.

The technicians do competent work to support star and director.
