Expired Lease
18 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Another B western that takes forever to get going on the plot, and then abandon sub-plots and characters to get to it's wishy washy conclusion. When the partner of Bob Crandall is missing after he finds a gold claim, Crandall goes to look for him (but not before hearing a few country songs). After getting no help from the city planners, Bob looks into it himself. Of course, since the planners have mustaches, they can't be trusted, and it turns out that they have stolen the claim! Luckily a plucky gal and a helpful dog are there to help Bob, and the usual "I'm not who you think I am" character that seems to arrive out of nowhere in desperate westerns such as this.

Rex Lease is not a bad cowboy, he just needs a good script. The dog, who seemed to have a central part in the script, sort of disappears ¾ of the way through, and we never did find out what happens to Bob Crandall's partner. It all adds up to a sort of blah night at the movies.
