Did You Know?


This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecasts took place in Los Angeles Monday 15 August 1949 on KNBH (Channel 4), in Cincinnati Sunday 23 October 1949 on WLW-T (Channel 4), and in New York City Sunday 27 November 1949 on the DuMont Television Network's WABD (Channel 5).

Smokey Never Lets Up On The Action
10 March 2020 | by frank4122See all my reviews

It doesn't get any better than Gabby, Bob Steele and his dad Robert Bradbury. Mary Kornman from "Our Gang" fame was wonderful as Gabby's step daughter and expert horseman Warner Richmond was great as the henchman sought by Steele. Of course it's not a 30's western without the great Earl Dwire and it was great to see Tex Palmer get some dialogue for a change. Smokey Smith had some fine actors, great stunt work and an intense storyline. Get ready to be on the edge of your seat for a wonderful ride with Smokey.
