Typical Louge Republic Pictures western
6 October 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I call Lounge those westerns from Republic pictures which most of the time took place more in lounges and saloons, cabarets and saloons than in the open land. Those westerns starring the likes of Rod Cameron, Forrest Tucker, Vera Ralston, John Russell and many more "acteurs maison". Not bad features, not that intellectual either but nothing to do with John Ford nor John Sturges either. Those westerns where leads wore more costumes than cow boys pants and shirts. I have nothing more to say about this movie made by Joe Kane, another "maison" director from the Serial company. PS Jack Ford actually directed a couple of westerns for Republic an they had nothing to do with this kind. Nothing at all.
