Sunset saves his dad & saves the day !
14 July 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

In this 1945 western entry from Sunset Carson, Carson's dad is framed for a crime he did not commit, and Sunset must work to free him and clear the family name. Fistfights, shootouts and general mayhem ensue !

Sunset Carson's tall, good ol' boy persona works well in this role. He was no actor, but handled action and humor equally well here. Linda Stirling again appears as the female lead and is as lovely and talented as ever.

Overall, this was an entertaining film, though nothing out of the ordinary. Fans of Carson will like it and others will find it a good time-passer.
