4.0 out of 5 stars A Happy Reminder of B Gone Days! 31 May 2014
If any actor was tall in the saddle it was John Wayne, who cut an imposing enough figure out of the saddle. This film was co-scripted by Wayne’s actor/writer friend Paul Fix, who also appears in the film as a heavy. Wayne clearly had an influence on the making of this film and was already beginning to exert his star power not long after hitting the big time with “Stagecoach”(39). He plays a cowboy who arrives in town only to find the man who sent for him has been murdered. The plot thickens considerably when he finds himself battling against a crooked lawyer, a very feisty female and most of the townsfolk. Getting to the truth is no easy matter! Poor Wayne is also forced to choose between that pesky beautiful firebrand and an equally gorgeous eastern damsel in distress. What’s a fellow to do?

The films old fashioned overly complicated plot reminded me of a Monogram B or a Mascot serial western, especially in one scene where a hand reaches through a window and seizes Wayne’s gun from his holster, then after using it to shoot a man throws it back in the room to implicate Wayne. This sort of plot device was used in the “3 Mesquiteers” serial westerns that Wayne starred in in the thirties. The appearance of Raymond Hatton, who also starred in that series, was another reminder of B gone days. This was Wayne’s only collaboration with director Edwin L. Marin, a B specialist who like Wayne had worked himself up from Poverty row pictures.

An excessively complicated mystery western this may be, but there is much to enjoy and savour in this western. Ella Raines gives an eye catching performance as the western wildcat hell-bent on catching her man. There is an amusing scene where she shoots at Wayne forcing him to take a whisky to settle his nerves.

A classic movie featuring John Wayne, that was very good for its era. Thoroughly enjoyable if you enjoy Cowboy movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described, a thumping good western. 18 Oct 2013

John Wayne at his best, the satisfying knowledge that the good guys will overcome the villains at the end with just the right amount of stand offs and steely stares by the Duke.
