Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-46. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. Its earliest documented post-WWII telecasts took place In Los Angeles Wednesday 20 April 1949 on KNBH (Channel 4), in Salt Lake City Wednesday 19 October 1949 on KDYL (Channel 4), and in Cincinnati Saturday 17 December 1949 on WLW-T (Channel 4).

Decent.
25 October 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This film begins with a fight. In the process, one of the guys shoots and hits the other man's son, Johnny. The father thinks the boy is dead and shoots the other man dead as he tries to speed away from the ranch. For some odd reason, now the father is wanted for murder (this charge seemed odd considering the circumstances and witnesses). So, Dad goes into hiding and a neighbor by the odd name of 'Sir George'(?) raises the boy.

Twenty years pass. The boy is now grown and played by Johnny Mack Brown. He loves his adopted father and wants to help Sir George locate his long-lost granddaughter. So, he leaves for New Mexico and finds the lady is now being harassed by an evil galoot (Trent). In the process he also unexpectedly finds his father--but neither knows the other at first--but Dad knows he doesn't like this stranger! What's next with this weird and rather contrived plot? See the film for yourself!

Like other Johnny Mack Brown films, it's NOT of the singing cowboy variety nor is he some pretty-boy cowboy. It is a compactly made B-movie--solid and done on the cheap. Now this does NOT mean it's a bad film but it lacks the polish, big name stars and background music you might get in a higher budgeted movie. But, like many Bs, it does have the occasional bad actor (the lawyer could barely deliver his lines). It also saves on money by having the actors actually fight it out without the use of stunt doubles--which actually improved the quality of the film. Overall, it's pretty good but there are LOTS of pretty good westerns out there---and most likely this one will get lost among the crowded genre.
