Randy vs Marvin
23 April 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Wait, John Wayne plays a guy named Randy? Seriously? If there was ever a guy who looked less like a Randy than John Wayne, I haven't seen him. Oh and the bad guy's name is Marvin! Anyway, so cowboy Randy walks into a saloon and discovers everybody inside murdered. While he's looking around, the sheriff and a posse show up, assume Randy is the killer, and arrest him. Randy manages to escape, however, and begins looking for the real killers. The lead bad guy Marvin is played by Gabby Hayes. When Marvin, who's been disguising himself among the good guys, has meetings with his gang he takes time to change into an all-black outfit, complete with the standard black hat. Classic. After the opening few minutes, which were interesting, this becomes a pretty routine horse opera. The only thing missing is that no girls were tied to railroad tracks. Wayne does fine but it's all standard programmer stuff so don't expect much.
