Storyline

"The Tioga Kid" is a remake of 1946's "Driftin' Kid" with only slight plot changes - hero Eddie Dean now has an identical twin brother working with the outlaws of stock from the original, all of the songs are recycled, most of the character names are the same, and the main difference is Jennifer Holt is now playing the role that Shirley Patterson had in "Driftin' River" as "Jenny Morgan," while most of the original cast - Dennis Moore, William Fawcett, Lee Bennett - are also here using the same character role names and, in some instances, the same footage. Eddie Dean and sidekick Soapy Jones return some stolen cattle (instead of horses) to Jenny Morgan, and Eddie runs off ranch hand Tucson Brown, who is working with the outlaws, led by Joe Morino, that includes Eddie's (unknown to him) twin Clint Mason/The Tioga Kid. After Jenny sees a wanted poster that makes her think Eddie is the Tioga Kid, Eddie has a hard time before bringing the gang to justice, aided by the change-of-heart ...

Two Eddie Deans
17 October 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Eddie Dean sets out to capture the thief, master cattle rustler, and now murderer the Tioga Kid, his exact double who may or may not be his long lost twin brother.

There's enough action and music to satisfy hardcore fans of Saturday matinée westerns, but once again Eddie and Soapy are pretty bland when not singing with the boys.

The presence of a second villainous version of the hero is a well worn staple of the genre and while it's always interesting to see the requisite split screen shots, here it doesn't really provide much of a spark.

Still, it's all unpretentious and inoffensive fun, though I wish it were better.
