Bearing in mind that films like The Devil's Saddle Legion were marketed for the
Saturday afternoon kiddie trade, still I had a lot of problems with this Dick Foran
oater from Warner Brothers.
Foran is a pleasant chap come home to Texas and not knowing yet that his
father has been bushwhacked and killed. He gets framed for murder of yet
another old friend by a crooked sheriff. But in this town the sentence is always
one of hard labor. And the crooks have a nefarious scheme to dam up the Red
River and steal Texas land when the river changes course and puts said land into
the Indian territory later Oklahoma. That includes Foran's former spread.
I have to say though Foran is a true cowboy hero. While working on the construction gang he saves the girl Anne Nagel when her horse bolts. Quick
as a flash he steals a horse and runs down the runaway and saves Nagel. So
what does he then do? He takes her back to the gang where once again he's
slapped in custody. I mean, really. I'll bet the Saturday matinee kids had
trouble swallowing that one.
Definitely not one of Foran's better westerns for Warner Brothers.
Here are some titles inspired by "The Falcon and the Winter Solider" that bring back Peggy Carter, explore mysteries with a few MCU mainstays, and feature a buddy-cop duo who clash as hard as Sam and Bucky.
