Sheep herders versus Cattlemen
5 August 2004 | by falsecutSee all my reviews

Totally unremarkable oater with your typical damsel in distress that Tex has to rescue. A "surprise" villain, once again there's a respected town resident who's in on it and spying on our heroes. Perhaps the most noteworthy item in the movie is that it's the sheep guys that are the bad guys, trying to overpower the cattlemen. Usually, it's the other way around. The songs are OK but not Ritter's best ones.

The sidekicks are Horace Murphy and Snub Pollard, who appear in several of Tex's westerns. This isn't Murphy's best performance. His dumb as a post act lacks humor I think. Snub is the more intelligent of the two but that's not saying much. He's got a great mustache though.
