Moderate Rex Allen Entry
27 December 2018 | by omahonyjsSee all my reviews

This particular effort is not up to some of Rex Allen's best and showed some cost cutting measures. The plot is slow to get going, acting is not up to par for some of the supporting cast in particular Mary Ellen Kay. Slim Pickens is OK but not as good as some former Republic side kicks.that worked with Roy Rogers, Andy Devine and Gordon Jones spring to mind. Some good riding and fight scenes and of course some singing. Location has been used before in some Roy Rogers films such as "North Of The Great Divide" Roy of course by this time had moved to TV. Also the b western films were coming to their end and very shortly Rex would bow out with his last b western before he too turned to TV. Sad to see them go as my generation enjoyed them so much in their heyday. Rex definitely had better entries than this one.
