Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz
Robert N. Bradbury(“Forbidden Trails”/”Trouble in Texas”/”Riders of the Rockies”) is director and writer, and his son Bob Steele stars. It’s a low-budget-B western, with a twisty script.
Steele wins a ranch in a horse race with Hal Price. Bad guy Ed Cassidy tries to steal the ranch from him by posing as a government land agent and selling it to Jack Rockwell. Cassidy then frames Steele for the murder of a saloon brawler (Charles King).
Earl Dwire is the sheriff. Catherine Cotter is Steele’s girlfriend. Milburn Morante is Steele’s loyal sidekick.
It’s the way they made westerns in a hurry back then. In less than five years, Steele made 52 Westerns.
