Amusing Eccentric RKO B Western
Tom Keene wanders into town in a black hat in this one. He gets a job with Rockcliffe Fellowes claiming acquaintance of a jailbird, charms Betty Furness, changes his hat, adopts a baby and finally gets around to why he's in town in this amusing, eccentric B Western.
Casey Robinson was finishing up a couple of years of directing Bs before he headed back to his writer's desk, and he fills this one-hour second feature with eccentric character actors. Mr. Keene plays the reluctant hero amusingly. Miss Furness appears in her screen debut; her part had been cut out of another picture, and she would continue as an adornment at RKO with few lines; here, stuttering Doctor Roscoe Ates has to speak her lines for her!
