Sheriff sends for outlaws
14 September 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Johnny Mack Brown stars in this poverty row western from Supreme Pictures in a tale with a resemblance to 3 Godfathers. Brown has a letter from sheriff Horace Murphy and so do Frank Campeau and John Beck a pair of outlaws. Now why a sheriff is sending for outlaws is a curious question. But our sheriff is in the pay of cattle baron Lloyd Ingraham and the local Ponderosa owner wants to drive out a bunch of homesteaders. Included in that is Beth Marion and a baby who Brown takes a fancy to.

When our trio doesn't do the job, Ingraham and Murphy hire the infamous Lobo Joe and his gang played by Roger Gray. That's when the action heats up as our 3 heroes along with Marion and the baby are trapped in a cabin without their weapons. How they came not to be with weapons is what I won't reveal. It's a good action sequence though.

What stunned me though was that the folks at Supreme Pictures thought it was a really cute gag to have the baby sucking on the barrel of Johnny Mack Brown's six gun. All I could say in this day and age when too often you read of kids accidentally shooting kids was YOIKES. The NRA will love it though.

But for that I might give Everyman's Law a higher rating.
