3 Mesquiteers .... .All for One, One for All !
6 June 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

The Three Mesquiteers series of B-westerns were a staple of Saturday matinees in the late 30's and 1940s. The stars in this one, Corrigan, Livingston and Terhune were the best of the various incarnations of the trio ( Which once included a young John Wayne !)

In this film , a group of greedy masked vigilantes impersonate a more well-intentioned group of masked men, causing the blame instead to fall on them. Seasoned villains George Chesboro and beady-eyed Earl Dwire make sinister appearances here.

This outing is fast-paced, well-acted and the stars give it their all. An above average Mesquiters film !
