At a border town, Eddie Dean and his partner, Soapy Jones, attend a fiesta at the home of Don Lopez who, in accordance with his custom, displays a valuable diamond necklace to his guests and has one of them, Maria, wear it. Jim Barrett, another guest, offers to buy the necklace but Don Lopez declines to sell. Barrett, with his henchmen Corey and Avery, plan to steal the necklace and the rest of the Lopez diamonds. Maria, to Eddie's surprise, appears to be working with the outlaws. But, as Eddie's investigation proceeds, it develops that Barrett's gang has also robbed Don Lopez of his gold, and that Maria is a representative of the Mexican government, sent to protect the gems.

The Purloined Necklace
31 October 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Jewel robbery was a rather unusual plot for a western, but it serves as the underlying cause for all the action that takes place in West To Glory starring Eddie Dean.

Dean was doing B westerns for Producer's Releasing Corporation at this point of his career and his sidekick here is Roscoe Ates who kept his usual stuttering act to a minimum. When I was first looking at the film I thought it was Fuzzy Knight, so identified with the stutter was Roscoe Ates.

Anyway Dean and Ates are at a fiesta at a border town where they discover a gang has been systematically robbing host Harry Vejar. Female guest at the fiesta Dolores Castle who was last seen wearing a valuable jeweled necklace seems to be working an agenda all her own.

In the end with three songs by Eddie Dean thrown in, it all gets resolved. Dean had a pleasant singing voice that occasionally saw action in non-western films.

Given the lack of production values, West to Glory is not too bad a film at all.
