Rogue of the Range review
21 April 2020 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

A government agent goes to prison in order to infiltrate a gang of robbers that has inside information on which stagecoaches are carrying gold bullion. Typical Poverty Row Western, lacking in ambition and style but delivering exactly the kind of mindless entertainment to be expected from this kind of thing. The absence of cars and other modern technology suggests the story is supposed to take place in the 1800s, and yet the prison has an electric saw and searchlights!
