Fast shootin' doc
17 September 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Johnny Mack Brown stars in this western for Monogram that has a bit more plot than your average B film. He plays a newly arrived doctor in the town who has a secret. His secret is that he's a fast gun with an accurate aim at what he shoots at.

This is one lawless town and saloon owner Harry Woods wants to keep it that way. The town brings in tamer Douglass Dumbrille and appoints him marshal with carte blanche. But to finish the job he will need Brown and those colts he carries in his doctor's bag.

Being a law and order marshal in a western is not a role I ever thought to see Dumbrille in. But he does carry it off.

Joan Woodbury has the role of Woods's partner in the saloon. She's in charge of the entertainment at the establishment and PeeWee King and his group who are in this film play at the saloon and work for her. She's also carrying a big secret which we don't learn until the end.

Enough gunplay to satisfy any western fan.
