| Lawless Justice Requires Dynamite
Three disparate men -- Bob Steele, Lafe McKee and Julian Rivero -- meet up in the middle of nowhere. At first they're suspicious, but they decide to travel together. Little do they know that they're all after the same man, Arthur Loft: Rivero, because he murdered his daughter; McKee because he was the sheriff when a friend of his was robbed and killed; and Steele because his friend was framed for the murder. Their travels take them to a town dying of thirst because John Cowell, who controls the water, has cut it off, despite the protests of his niece, Renee Borden.

Robert Bradbury writes and directs this proto-Three-Mesqueteers movie about rough-and-ready justice very well -- a couple of holes can be laid to the fact that the 50-minute print I saw had six minutes cut off the original running time. Longtime movie actor McKee, who entered films in 1913 with Selig, gets the juiciest role. Rivero gets a rare good-guy gig, although given his quest for vengeance, it's nicely nuanced. Steele, whose roles I watch in this period for his acrobatics, doesn't perform any, but he does get one big fight and sings a couple of songs. It's all very nicely done, with a dynamite ending, and a superior B western for the period.
