Storyline

Trailed by Marshal Charley Blythe (Stanley Price), who thinks they are part of the Cyclone Kid (John Cason)bandit gang, Shamrock Ellison (James Ellison) and Lucky Hayden (Russell Hayden), are attacked by the outlaws. Blythe helps the pair drive off the outlaws but is wounded in the process and stops to recuperate. The Cyclone Kid has plans to take over an oil-rich ranch, which by right belongs to Shamrock, though he doesn't know it. Learning of the situation, Shamrock and Lucky go to court to protect Shamrock's claim, which is refused, and and are arrested on suspicion of the missing Blythe's murder. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

B-western sidekicks take the lead !
28 April 2008 | by ca-corbettSee all my reviews

This is a fun, engaging western film from the heyday of the western programmer. Former Hopalong Cassidy sidekicks James Ellison and Russell Hayden star in this sagebrush tale of switched identities. Along the way court battles and gun play plague the stalwart heroes.

Ellison and Hayden are fine in the lead roles, although they always seemed more at ease in supporting roles. Raymond Hatton, the prolific cowboy character actor, is outstanding in a fun supporting performance. Hatton was equally capable of both drama and comedy, a rare trait in most western sidekicks.

These sort of films were designed to fill the bill at the Saturday matinées of the era. As such, this one was fun but not very innovative.
