A Good Lonestar Production
24 September 2007 | by jayraskin1See all my reviews

Gabby Hayes irascible sidekick performance and Yakima Canutt's excellent stunt work make this one quite watchable. Gabby is delightful, especially when he puts on a dress to testify at his own trial. The horse transfer stunt that doesn't work is really special. Yakima (doubling for Wayne) jumps on a fleeing horse from his own galloping horse, he misses and ends up rolling down a hill. One gasps and hopes he wasn't hurt.

With likable characters and a plot that keeps moving, this one is quite professional and on a par with a good Lone Ranger episode two decades later.
