For men who ride alone.............
Above average B western - curiously dedicated to men who ride alone! - has the excellent Tom Tyler as the Llano Kid, an outlaw (who isn't really of course) looking out for the underdogs and oppressed who have been cheated by smarmy villain, Montana Slade (Al Bridge).
Adele Lacy, as heroine Ruth, the schoolmarm from "back East",flouts B western tradition by playing her part in a surprisingly vampish manner: presumably no-one explained the rules to her! One stunt I don't recall seeing previously involves hero Tom hiding in a tumbleweed and boarding the stagecoach, from beneath, when it trundles over him. Innovative stuff! There's also a good (for 1933) saloon fight between Tyler and Bridge, chairs and tables flying in all directions while the barflies urge them on.
