The Return Of Fargo Jack
9 August 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Allan Lane in this film is an agent for an express company worried about a rash of robberies perpetrated against Eddy Waller's freighting line. The blame is being pinned on old time outlaw Fargo Jack who had dropped out of sight.

That however is a clever ruse being used by the real outlaw leader who has learned that the local sheriff is the real Fargo Jack living peacefully and quietly and most of all anonymously with his daughter. The outlaw leader has one of his henchmen dress as Fargo Jack and use some of the mannerisms that Fargo Jack was known for. It fools everyone except of course Rocky Lane.

I haven't mentioned any cast members in this save Lane and Waller because the outlaw leader's occupation is an unusual one for an outlaw leader in B westerns. As for the rest of the film, a lot of good riding and shooting. Who wants more for this kind of film and an interesting story as well.
