Maynard's In A Jackpot
5 July 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Ken Maynard not only starred in, but produced this particular western of his at Universal Pictures. Being released through Universal it was a considerably above the usual poverty row product that was gutting the Saturday afternoon matinée market. It's also considerably darker in content.

We're talking here of the Maynard family honor. Ken plays dual roles here, the usual standup straight arrow western hero who happens to be a sheriff. He's also a storekeeper who gets himself into a real jackpot when some money left in trust for him by Cecilia Parker and her father James A. Marcus is robbed through his connivance. And brother Ken who doesn't pursue the crooks with his usual zeal gets caught up in the jackpot as well.

Fred Kohler is the head of the gang and he's his usual nasty villain. He's also got a nice interest in Parker, something neither of the Maynards approve.

Honor Of The Range is a good B western with far better production values than normal. This could easily have been a A product with a bigger star.
