Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This B-western has Dan Duryea as an easterner who, by accident, becomes a vicious bounty hunter out west and only meets his match when a young bounty hunter (played by Duryea's son, Peter) appears to settle the score. The director, former stuntman Spencer G Bennet, was a veteran of sagebrush operas and serials such as Superman and Batman and Robin. For this effort, one of his last films, he gathered a nostalgic supporting cast: former Tarzan and Flash Gordon Buster Crabbe; a former football legend and the star of the 1930 Billy the Kid, Johnny Mack Brown; Fuzzy Knight, who usually co-starred with Brown or Tex Ritter in Republic serials; and Richard Arlen, the star of one of the first Oscar-winning films of 1927/28, Wings.
