The colorful west !
30 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

This 1945 Cinecolor B-western favorite features the great Bob Steele in a tale of wrangling, rustling & revenge . A magnificent but untamed horse named Wildfire is wrongfully blamed for rustling and horse-wrangling!

This was a rare color film for Bob Steele, with a unique twist on the standard sagebrush movie plot. Steele is very good here in the action scenes and was one of the better Cowboy heroes of the day. It was fun to see the singing cowboy Eddie Dean in the co-starring role as the local Sheriff !

Many of the films from this era are indistinguishable from each other, but the plot, performances and Cinecolor presentation make this a must-see for the Western fan. A notch above the average oater !
