Steele is all action
11 March 2020 | by frank4122See all my reviews

Another great western from the Bradbury boys with an excellent cast. Eleanor Stewart with great skill shows why she won the MGM talent contest. Great to see Budd Buster as Steele's reliable sidekick. Ernie Adams played a great role and kept us guessing which side of the law he was on. John Merton, Earl Dwire, and Judge Frank Ball kept the pace going with very challenging acting roles. Even Hal Taliaferro with a small part added to the success of the action packed The Gun Ranger.
