More Complex Than Usual
17 August 2016 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Rather complex Holt western, with a couple of twists so stay closely tuned. Our trio of heroes are out to find Holt's missing brother and in the process bust up a crooked ring headquartered in town. Whitley, White and Holt make a good RKO version of the Three Mesquiteers—Holt, the hero; Whitley, the tunesmith; and White, comedy relief. In fact, I wish Whitley and the Six-Bar Cowboys had more country tunes. They make a really good musical group. Nothing special here—some good hard riding, flying fists, and fast shooting though nobody much drops as a result. Bad aiming, I guess. Too bad Lassie's first TV mom, Jan Clayton, hasn't much to do except stand around and look pretty, while Fern Emmett makes a personable spinster. Scenery doesn't count for much here. Looks like location was done around the Mormon Rocks northeast of LA. Anyway, it's a decent if unexceptional matinée oater. And, oh yes, I'm keeping my female cat in the house from now on.
