Storyline

Bob Marlow is sent undercover to an Arizona town where an outlaw gang, comprised of the six Tolliver brothers, have taken over the town and terrorizing the citizens. He comes to town, posing as an Eastern dude, and, through a series of incidents manages to get rid of three of the brothers, mostly through their own ineptness. The remaining brothers decide to get-while-the-gettin'-is good, rob the bank and head for the Mexican border. But Bob isn't far behind. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Scrappy Steele vs. Bandit Gang
3 July 2019 | by fredcdobbs5See all my reviews

A tenderfoot arrives in a tough cowtown that's being terrorized by a gang headed by the vicious Tolliver brothers. He finds himself on the receiving end of the gang's ire when two of them are killed and he is blamed for it. However, it turns out that the tenderfoot's feet may not be all that tender.

The film packs a lot of ridin' and shootin' into less thlan an hour. Steele ie scrappy as always, Si Jenks provides comedy relief as a braggart who takes on the job of town marshal thinking it's an easy way to make money, Gertrude Messenger is pretty but doesn't have much to do, and everything gets tied up neatly at the end. It's about par for Steele's westerns for Supreme Pictures. Competently directed by his father Robert Bradbury, it's nothing special but a harmless enough way to pass an hour.
