I came across this picture by chance on a community access cable TV channel and found it quite satisfying, much better than the usual low budget Western. It supports Republic's reputation for doing a lot on a small budget. (Before the closing credits, I could tell it was a Republic picture by the distinctive sound effect that company used for every type of gunshot.) This is the type of Western that would soon be killed off by television, but the people who made and acted in them would be kept busy in that medium. Republic Studios would go to be the home of numerous TV Westerns produced by Four Star, Revue (before it moved to Universal), and CBS (who would later purchase the studio complex).
