Lots of twists
9 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Trying to go the 3 Mesquiteers, Rangebusters, Rough Riders route in his B westerns at RKO Tim Holt is given two sidekicks in Six Gun Gold, Lee White and Ray Whitley who contributed a song or two.

Tim's in the vicinity to visit his brother who's the new US Marshal in the area, but he finds that instead of Lane Chandler he finds perennial western heavy LeRoy Mason masquerading as the marshal. Later on Holt and his companions make the acquaintance of Eddy Waller and daughter Jan Clayton who have a mining claim and along with other miners are systematically being robbed.

The news that the marshal ain't who he says he is answers a few questions, but in this 57 minute B western a lot of good plot turns are present, far more than you'll see in a typical shoot 'em up.

Tim Holt B westerns are usually pretty good and this one is no exception, in fact I think it's one of his best. Don't let the short running fool you.
