An Old Philosophical Outlaw
24 June 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The title role in Arizona Gunfighter is played by Bob Steele who kills a couple of guys who had bushwhacked his father, but then gets badly wounded himself. Rescue comes in the form of an old an philosophical outlaw played by Ted Adams who is tired of the outlaw game and sees in Steele a young version of himself. He breaks up the gang and decides to take Steele to live on his ranch in an obscure part of the territory where he made sure the gang never operated. Adams also gives himself up and goes to prison.

However henchman Lew Meehan figures he's got a lot of good years left in him for the outlaw trade and he reactivates the gang. It's up to Steele and Adams to bring justice to the territory and make sure the gang doesn't ride again.

The plot is a bit silly and elements of that plot are taken from the James Cagney classic G-Men where an old gangster sends Cagney on the straight and narrow to the FBI and henchmen keep the old gang going. Still the film is sincerely done and the players look comfortable out on the range.
