Typical "Oater" of the period, but great for Faron Young fans!
10 May 2003 | by markrathSee all my reviews

Hidden Guns is a typical, grade B, one-hour-long Republic "Oater" (Western sub-genre) of the period, BUT, if you happen to be a Faron Young fan, it is an amazing look into what a good actor he was. Even though Deputy Faron Young (he used his own name for his character) never picks up a guitar and sings, he does provide an opening song--and also recaps the plot in song several times during the hour just in case you doze off. These songs have never surfaced, even in his Bear Family Box Set, so it's nice to uncover some rare Faron Young. Richard Arlen does a great job as Sheriff Ward Young (Faron's father - Arlin and Young would both appear later in 1967's The Road To Nashville - but not on the screen together), John Carridine chews the scenery (never better) as the hired gun, and don't blink or you'll miss Angie Dickinson (in only her fifth film) as Faron's love interest. Faron only made two more Westerns: Daniel Boone, Trail Blazer (1956) and Raiders of Old California (1957). The other half-dozen films he appeared in were singing performances, and it's great they've been preserved, but a shame Faron did not follow Elvis' road, as he showed great promise as an actor.
