Did You Know?


This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It first aired in Detroit Thursday 1 September 1949 on WJBK (Channel 2), in Cincinnati Saturday 24 September 1949 on WCPO (Channel 7) and in Salt Lake City Saturday 31 December 1949 on KSL (Channel 5).

A little rough at the beginning, but really good by the end!
12 April 2005 | by stevehaynieSee all my reviews

I like Tom Tyler's movies even if he wasn't the best actor. He just looked good on screen. Roamin' Wild is not a showcase of great acting! There were some cast members that had more talent than others, but overall the movie comes across as stiff, at least in the beginning. B westerns were made in a hurry and on a tight budget, but placing a camera at an optimum position would not have cost more money. The sets were good, but the way they were filmed made them look cheap. Despite all this, Roamin' Wild manages to get better and better as it goes along. The plot builds, and the action gets better. By the end the movie is great! You wouldn't expect that from the first few minutes, though.

The character that stands out the most is Abe Wineman (Max Davidson), who travels with a wagon full of clothing, pots and pans, etc. As the bad guys attempt to steal his wares, Tom Barton (Tyler) saves him. Abe becomes the equivalent of a sidekick although I would not give him a true sidekick status. The character is essential to the plot, but not given a spotlight like a real sidekick.

I have seen better features with Tom Tyler, but Roamin' Wild is worth watching. Just be patient. The movie improves steadily toward the end.
