Great story and script and excellent cast more than make up for low budget
13 January 2018 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

After watching several Bob Steele movies in a row, I realize I will never get tired of them. He himself was a good actor who just got better and better as his career went on. He was able to steal a scene without saying a word, and did so in later features where he was just a with, sometimes even without screen credit.

When Bob Steele had a script by the prolific George Plympton, he was even better. Plympton wrote this screenplay, adapted from an unusual story by Harry F. Olmstead.

Directing was OK, but nothing special was needed with this superlative cast and good camera work. As Shakespeare said, "The play's the thing."

Among the many stand-outs in this cast, Ernie Adams again surprised me: He played the kind of almost-comic character he just is not noted for. His main claim to fame, and I'm discovering that claim is false, is the sniveling bad guy. Here he is so watchable, so strong in his characterization, I was just dumbfounded in awe.

Another Adams, Ted, gets here what might have been his own best role. I've not seen him in anything before that I even remember, but, here, his character is strong, likable, even admirable, and he handles it all with superlative ability.

Many of the other players seem to be part of a stock company, a stock company of perfect Western performers who should have made hundreds more movies. Yes, in my opinion they're that good.

The print I saw at YouTube is terrible. Sometimes too dark to be able to tell just what is happening. Sometimes it's dark for night scenes, sometimes perhaps because the print is too many generations old. Still for a movie this good, I could put up with the lousy print, and I hope you do too.
