| The Usual Foolishness
Sheriff Tim McCoy falls for Philadelphian Marceline Day, tries to keep his brother, Arthur Rankin, from falling for Mexican Dorothy Granger, while hunting mysterious outlaw "the Shadow" in this decent but unremarkable Columbia B western.

It's all handled well enough by cameraman Benjamin Kline under the direction of longtime Western director Lambert Hillyer, although some of the performances might be better. Perhaps Hillyer might have done with a dialogue director; Rankin and obviously villainous Robert Ellis both seem a little stiff in speechifying. However, with the usual fine visuals of the Columbia B westerns and a far more complicated and interesting plot than later Bs would offer, fans of the genre should be more than satisfied.
