A Neighbor Needs Help
15 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Boothill Brigade has Johnny Mack Brown as a rancher trying to help a neighbor at the behest of the neighbor's daughter Claire Rochelle who Brown has a thing for. She's worried because her father Frank LaRue has fired all his old hands and replaced them with gunmen. When one sees perennial western villain Dick Curtis as the new foreman at the LaRue place any B western fan knows that something is afoot.

Truth is that LaRue is in some deep debt to Ed Cassidy who holds notes on his property and is using it as a base from which his hired guns can threaten all the other ranchers. Cassidy's a greedy villain, he wants the whole area.

This one is a subpar western where possibly a lot may have been left on Republic's cutting room floor. You have to bridge a whole lot of gaps in Boothill Brigade for it to make some coherent sense. In fact motivation for a lot of the characters is missing from the film.

Not the best product of Herbert J. Yates and Republic Pictures nor of Johnny Mack Brown.
