One of the best in the Allan Rocky Lane series
22 May 2005 | by krorieSee all my reviews

This is not only one of the best in the Rocky Lane series of westerns but the title actually relates to the story. Rocky goes undercover as always and takes the name "The Denver Kid." Nuggett is around as always as the go-between. Why Nuggett is always re-introduced to Rocky in each film is still a bit hazy to me, but the producers must have had a reason for it. And the beautiful Blackjack is there to do his part to save Rocky. This time he leads a herd of horses across the border to where Rocky actually has legal jurisdiction to deal with the outlaws. Rory Mallison as Jason Fox does a good job in a role that reminds one of the historical attempt by Aaron Burr to carve out a piece of United States territory for himself to rule as a dictator. At first, I thought Rory Mallison was the great western actor John Russell until I saw his face up close. There was one minor problem I had with the movie. Why was Emmett Vogan chosen to play Captain Stan Roberts? He was around 55 at the time and Captain Roberts was supposed to be a much younger man, in his 20's or 30's. Emmett vogan was a fine character actor but much too old for the part. If you like plenty of action and a good story for a Saturday afternoon oater, this is a film to see.
