HASH(0x8fbfa3b4) out of 5 stars "Tom Tyler B-Western Series ... Terror of the Plains (1934) ... VCI Home Video" 15 Nov. 2006
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
VCI Entertainment presents "TERROR OF THE PLAINS" (1934) (57 mins/B&W) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- relive those thrilling days when Tom Tyler took us down the dusty trails with hard riding and straight shooting hitting the bull's eye with excitement every time... the Tom Tyler series of B-Westerns were a staple of Saturday matinees in the 1930s and 1940s ... don't miss any of the Tom Tyler features loaded with action that will leave you wanting more of his B-Western adventures.

Under Harry S. Webb (Director/Associate Producer), Bernard B. Ray (Producer), Rose Gordon (Story), Carl Krusada (Dialogue), Jayne Regan (Continuity), Bob Card (song "The Vaquero is Bold"), Al Haskell (song "The Vaquero is Bold"), J. Henry Kruse (Cinematographer), Frederick Bain (Editor) ------ the cast includes Tom Tyler (Tom Lansing), Roberta Gale (Bess Roberts), William Gould (Kirk Cramer, aka 'Butcher' Wells), Slim Whitaker (Henchman Nevada), Fern Emmett (Rose), Nelson McDowell ('Parson' Jones), Frank Rice (Banty (Tom's Sidekick), Ralph Lewis ('Dad' Lansing), Robert Walker (Sheriff), Murdock MacQuarrie (Foreman Cole) . . . . . . our hard riding hero Tom Tyler is headed for a ghost town, will he find the man who framed his father for murder ... there is a trial set for his father Ralph Lewis, and William Gould thinks he's going to escape justice, cause he's the real culprit ... great to see a favorite badman of all B-Westerns Slim Whitaker make his presence known in this action packed oater ... much more action than anyone can handle, another great B-Western for Tom Tyler under the Poverty Row Picture banner, proves to be one of his most exciting performances ... Tyler looks great as usual and most of his stunts are his own.

Special footnote, actor Tom Tyler (nee Vincent Markowski) born into a Polish-American family in 1903 ... Tyler had a long career in film, stretching from the 1920s to the 1950s, and appeared in many films, most of them westerns such as John Ford's "Stagecoach" (1939) as Luke Plummer and "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" (1949) .Cpl. Mike Quayne, Leader of Paradise River Patrol ... The biggest part of Tyler's career was spent making B-movie westerns, however. Tyler also notably portrayed the Fawcett Comics superhero "Captain Marvel" in the 1941 film serial "The Adventures of Captain Marvel", which was the first film adaptation of a superhero in history. In 1940, he was the Mummy in "The Mummy's Hand"; Lon Chaney, Jr. took over the role and played it in three sequels ... "The Phantom", starring Tom Tyler.In 1943, he played another superhero, in the highly successful "The Phantom", based on Lee Falk's famous comic strip ... Tyler was beset by rheumatoid arthritis in the later part of his career, and was limited to occasional supporting roles often for director John Ford, for whom he had worked in a number of films prior to his illness ... passed away at the age of 50 in 1954 due to heart failure . . . . . . for further information check out Mike Chapman along with Bobby Copeland presents "The Tom Tyler Story: From Cowboy Star to Super Hero", telling the inside story in depth of a clean cut, manly role model that positively impacted a portion of an entire generation of moviegoers...each segment of chapters spells out the two reelers, serials and features, plus dozens of TV shows with a total of 150 plus films...every page breathes life into the story from the authors as only they can deliver through pen and paper...this tribute was written from the heart and it shows ... pick up your copy today from Amazon..

HASH(0x8fadeb64) out of 5 stars Rescuing an Innocent Man 14 July 2014
By Acute Observer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Terror of the Plains, 1935 film

It begins with men singing around a campfire. The mail arrives. Tom Lansing gets bad news, he quits to return home. His friend Bandy also leaves. Tom’s father is in jail, accused of murder. He needs to get Butcher Wells as a witness to prove his innocence. Those who go to that ghost town never leave. A man rides there, chased by John Law. “Tom Smith” can fight some. Kramer is the boss of this outlaw roost. Tom fights Kramer, no holds barred. Tom wins and gets the girl. They are married by the Parson (he also strayed here and couldn’t leave). The men leave to rob a wagon. But a shot prevents this robbery! Who did it? One gang member will investigate. (Identification was done by a hat.)

The Parson recognizes Tom Lansing, and tells he can prove Tom’s father is innocent. There is a Kangaroo Court (the name tells of its Australian origins) to handle suspected traitors. Who is the double-crosser? Tom pulls a pistol to capture Butcher Wells and bring him back alive. But Wells has spare guns. The horses are stampeded out of town. There is plenty of shooting for action! [Nobody seems to need time to reload their six-shooters. The bent arms suggest blanks, not aimed fire.] The posse arrives to capture the gang. Wells gets away so there is a chase. Tom catches him for another fight. There is a happy ending. Tome gets the girl, Bandy gets the cook.

This seems below average for a story. If no one is allowed to leave where did they get their food (or the money to pay for it)? The fist fights seem false, they need a better trainer for more realistic punches. Its not a bad story, but there are better ones.
