Hard riding, shooting and brawling
14 June 2020 | by frank4122See all my reviews

Steele rides head on Flash's (John Merton) Lazy A Ranch gang with a stagecoach robbery and then in town with a bar room brawl for the ages. The express local agent Mary Barton (Terry Walker) had several robberies and to make matters worse Billy the Kid may be the sheriff. Is hired hand Carleton Young also in with the gang? Wonderful movie with Bob Steele's great acting chops, legendary director Sam Newfield, Keystone Kops 'Fuzzy' St. John and the best heavy ever, Charles King.
