Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Another big, bad boss-man trying to take over.
7 November 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Lawless Range" is a B-western with little to distinguish it but one thing....John Wayne. While many today don't realize it, Wayne was in B-westerns and serials during most of the 1930s and only graduated up to A-films in the early 40s. All the B-westerns shared a few things in common: they were quickly made, had very low budgets and recycled the same sorts of plots again and again. In this case, the recycled plot is the cliched secret baddie who is trying to buy up all the land and force the settlers to leave. Why? What is the big baddie's aim? See the film to find out.

In addition to seeing Wayne, you can also see a silly thing movie makers TRIED with him...to make him a singing cowboy. He couldn't sing at all...so they dubbed him with a very deep baratone voice that sounded nothing like Wayne.

Overall, this is just an ordinary western, at best. Wayne poses as someone else while investigating....again, very familiar stuff. And, indifferently handled.
