The plot is quite confusing. It finds US Marshalls Buck (Buck Jones) and Tim (Tim McCoy) going to meet their friend, Marshall Sandy (Raymond Hatton). However, Sandy has disappeared and is accused of murder. Can Buck and Tim find their friend, sort out this mess and bring the real killer to justice? The biggest thing that surprised me was seeing McCoy's character killing several of the bad guys. None of this shooting them in the hand crap--I am talking about plugging them! This was quite practical and I liked it--too bad the rest of the film wasn't so cool. In fact, the film is VERY slow up until the finale. And, when the finale came, it was also a bit lame. In particular, I loved the battle where the baddies and the hero were all only about 10 feet apart behind tables and were shooting non-stop for about 5 minutes. The tables were totally unsplintered and no one got hurt! Yet, while this was happening, Tim was killing baddies with crazy abandon just down the street! Crazy!
I can't compare this to the Rough Rider films, as it's only about the third one I've seen. However, as a Tim McCoy film its quality is far lower and more dreary than the stuff he was making just a few years earlier. At best fair entertainment.
