Storyline

Barton has his men knock off Bill Ryan so that Barton will end up with his ranch. He has a forged will that gives the ranch and everything on it to him, and not Bill's kid's. But Eddie and Soapy show up to help Robin retain the ranch for as long as she can. But Barton's lawyer, Small, seems to have all the cards and wants Robin out so that Barton can pay off his debts.

Tough to Watch
14 August 2003 | by Jim TrittenSee all my reviews

Villain Brad Barton has his men ambush rancher and his half brother Bill Ryan to get control of his ranch. Barton forges a will that gives the ranch and everything on it to him. Bills daughter and son are left out in the cold. Two marshals have been called in to help -- hero and singing cowboy Eddie Dean and sidekick Soapy Jones help the kids and save the day. A surprise ending - but really nothing can save this lackluster performance from itself. Recommended only if you want to hear the hero sign the theme and other songs or watch a teen age girl and young boy successfully chase off the bad guys. Does the hero get the girl or the horse in the end? You will have to see it to find out.
