On his way back to his hometown and girl, Judy, Dan picks up 10-year-old Robbie whose father has been killed. Dan gets a job as a bank teller and suspicion falls on him when a hold-up occurs and he doesn't use his guns.

Lots of Gunplay in Slightly Above Average Saddle Soap
5 September 2016 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

A Tad Above Average B-Western that has Plenty of Heart and Plenty of Gunfire. George Montgomery is trying to Hang-Up His Outlaw Guns but His Old Gang won't let go. The always Reliable Steve Brodie is now Heading the bunch of No-Goodniks and is Determined to make Montgomery Pay in more ways than one.

Nifty Little Saddle Soap that utilizes that 50's Plot Point that Post-War Baby-Boomers got there Handle. It's all about Kids ("Shane", "The Rifleman"). This one isn't too Sappy and the Cast makes it Appealing and Heartwarming.

Guns Ablaze and the Solution has an Optimistic, Forgiving Attitude about Gangster Reform for a Sunny Conclusion. Enjoyable, Fast-Paced Western that should Please Fans of the Genre.

Brodie Steals the Show as a Nasty Creep and the rest of the Seasoned Cast Help things stay on course. The Kid, who just Lost His Dad, shows some Intelligence and Attitude that Rivals the Grownups and does Not Diminish the Grit of the Movie.
