Formulaic Western
28 July 2010 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

It seems that trios were very much the thing in the 30s and 40s,what with Hopalong Cassidy and his sidekicks,The Three Mesquiteers,and in this film Billy The Kid also has 2 sidekicks.Dave O Brien is more familiar from the Pete Smith Specialties.Fuzzy Knight must have more credits than any one else around 350.He seemed to play every part the same.and the same could be said for this western.It is rather like filming by numbers.If you want originality then don't bother with this film.Perhaps the only slightly unusual aspect is the fact that the doctor is a villain who tries to kill all of his patients.Quite frankly i found it difficult to keep interested in this film.
