Routine
Routine oater at best. Mc Coy can do the hard-eyed stare with the best of them, while his 20- gallon hat tops about everything in sight. The plot's a fairly standard one—Baxter (McCoy) getting back from town's crooks what's been stolen from him. I like the unexpected twist with young Johnny (Darrow) that makes a surprise plot complication. The trouble is there's neither much action nor hard riding (with one notable exception). Plus, the scenery never gets out of the LA area scrublands. Still, this was a payday for a lot of middle-age supporting actors, including the 45-year old McCoy and the sepulchral Charles Middleton also known as Ming the Merciless from the old Buck Rogers serial. All in all, the 60-minutes is not in the front rank of horse operas but still enough for this front-row geezer.
