I have only recently become a fan of the B movie genre and even more recently become a fan of the old b westerns. I enjoy them very much and its easy to do so. Admittedly, their charm often doesn't include much in originality or good writing. Basically you have a hero, a pretty girl, some bad guys and they spend their time chasing each other on horseback with six guns blazing. It sounds simple but it definitely works. However, you occasionally run across one that rises above and entertains with the usual elements plus gives you something extra. Sometimes its a really exceptional cast, maybe taunt direction, especially well staged action scenes...whatever. This one stands out because it has the usual elements plus outstanding writing. This is a very well plotted movie and the cast seems game to do the material proud. I really like this one and Ken Maynard has not been high on my lists of favorite cowboys before now.
You get a really nice love triangle wrapped around some well conceived humor and the usual action. This is a story worth telling and told well. In my opinion this a true Hollywood near classic and a genre gem.
