User Reviews

 
Action was slow but enjoyable
12 June 2005 | by irvin2See all my reviews

The plot was interesting and unique. However, it was stretched thin and some chapters dragged. 12 chapters would have been better than 15. Ralph Byrd was rather wooden in the title role and a slightly younger actor like Kane Richmond or Clayton Moore would have been preferable. Ramsey Ames was great as the heroine. I thoroughly enjoyed her singing. The comic book Vigilante was a country and western singer. It's too bad that more country music was not featured as it might have made the serial move faster. Lyle Talbot was adequate as the villain but Charles Middleton would have been better. The sidekick Stuff did not provide the comic relief that is typical of most sidekicks. George Offerman,Jr.was no Smiley Burnette.
