contains 1930s stereotypes
25 April 2003 | by KDWmsSee all my reviews

Grant Brade is in debt to John Duncan. Brade plans to eliminate that debt by marrying Duncan's daughter, Betty. But SHE wants Tom Shaw to be her husband. So Brade hires Rattler Haynes and company to stop the weddin' and kill Shaw, who, however, intercepts a note from Brade to Haynes, and tears it in such a way as to make the Haynes gang go gunnin' for Brade's. This film also introduces us to Pastor Pete, who ain't afraida nobody; and Betty's kid brother, Jimmy, who's good at bein' in somebody's face. An example of dialogue and unreality of movement that typifies many movies of the 1930s.
