Seen long ago, as a boy - western movie fan.
3 April 1999 | by LbeeSee all my reviews

Details of the film are sketchy as it was viewed in the early forties - a Saturday afternoon matinee. The character Deadwood Dick intrigued me for his horsemanship (flying mounts) and the fact that he wore a full, black face mask when chasing the evildoers. I hoped for more of Deadwood Dick, but never saw him again.
