Early Wayne Western Have Similar Traits, And That's Fine
A number of John Wayne's early westerns looked alike, but that's not a criticism because the handful I've seen were all entertaining.
That's one similarity: others included the fact they only were about an hour long, had interesting (albeit strange) dialog, had a pretty lead female (here, Mae Madison) and a very talented horse named "Blue." Of course, the men were all tough guys.
There is a lot of action and interesting scenes packed into this one hour.
My only complaint was that Luis Alberini's character made the Mexicans look unnecessarily stupid.
