Pretty Good Production Values
10 September 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Bad guys want to keep wild horse herd from reaching the army. Maynard and Gibson arrive in time to help keep that from happening.

Looks like lowly Monogram wanted to give The Trailblazers series a big send-off since production values are better than expected. That rousing opening is well stocked with horses, wagons, and cowboys. The big herd crossing the river is also a good spectacle. There are several of these fairly lavish scenes and I don't think they're stock shots, at least that I could tell. The plot meanders a bit, but then they've got a ton of great supporting actors to work in-– all-purpose Tom London, baddie Stanford Jolley, Gunsmoke's Glen Strange, and the familiar Kenne Duncan. Unfortunately, Maynard doesn't project much charisma and neither does Gibson. But then each has done a hundred of these matinees and each is pushing past 50. Nonetheless, there's enough hard-riding, fast-shooting, and flying fists, to keep this Front Row geezer happy, along with an easy-on-the-eyes Betty Miles. Matinée fans could do a lot worse.
