"In less than five years, Steele made 52 Westerns."

Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz

Robert N. Bradbury ("Forbidden Trails"/"Trouble in Texas"/"Riders of the Rockies") is director and writer, and his son Bob Steele stars. It's a low-budget-B western, with a twisty script.

Steele wins a ranch in a horse race with Hal Price. Bad guy Ed Cassidy tries to steal the ranch from him by posing as a government land agent and selling it to Jack Rockwell. Cassidy then frames Steele for the murder of a saloon brawler (Charles King).

Earl Dwire is the sheriff. Catherine Cotter is Steele's girlfriend. Milburn Morante is Steele's loyal sidekick.

It's the way they made westerns in a hurry back then. In less than five years, Steele made 52 Westerns.
