Tim Holt and Richard Martin starred in a long series of RKO B westerns from the early 1940s through the mid 1950s. Production values were good, stories generally were fine, but the directors were people like Lesley Selander, director of this effort, who knew how to shoot the scenes very well but wasn't much on directing the actors. Good actors like Holt and Martin could usually manage, although they occasionally made bad acting choices, but the leading ladies, usually up-and-coming starlets, often gave wooden readings of their lines, like Linda Douglas in this.
This is a typical entry. It is, by all means, satisfactory except for one or two performances. It is well worth your time.
