Save the orphans
31 July 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This 3 Mesquiteer film finds our heroes trying to stop cattle rustling and save an orphanage at the same time. Inconceivable but the same villain wants to close down an orphanage is also behind a lot of cattle rustling and the dastardly deeds are connected.

Ray Corrigan, Robert Livingston, and Max Terhune happen to be the trustees of said orphanage and they put a stop to the closing temporarily. As it turns out the Cattleman's Association provides the funds, but they're going broke as well with all the rustling and the insurance payments going out. Cattle rustling had to be stopped to save the orphanage permanently.

Not one of the better plotted films of the series and I agree with the previous reviewer the gimmick where the beans are spilled is pretty lame.
