Storyline

Ted Hayden and his pal Dusty Rhodes come across a dying outlaw, Gatt Ganns. On Ganns's person, they find a letter of introduction to rancher Gentry implicating Gentry in the disappearance of Ted's kid brother Jim and the murder of their father many years earlier. Ted takes on Ganns's identity and pretends to go to work for Gentry, while actually looking for further evidence that Gentry did indeed murder his father and abduct his brother.

"From now on, I'm Gat Ganns - murderer."
29 July 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Ted Hayden (John Wayne) and his pal Dusty (Gabby Hayes) find wanted outlaw Gat Ganns dying. Hayden decides to impersonate Ganns in order to get a job as a hired gun for evil rancher Gentry (Lloyd Whitlock). He hopes to find out who killed his father and what happened to his brother. He also meets a girl who was shot in the head (!) by some of Gentry's men. Romance surely must follow.

Another John Wayne cheapie western made early in his career. As with most of his other cheapies, this one also features Gabby Hayes and Yakima Canutt. Yakima's stunts are the best part. It's a watchable oater but nothing to get worked up over. Try to catch the version without the irritating electronic score.
