Will the real Mccoy please stand up?
Tim Mccoy, who, for some odd reason is listed as "Colonel Tim Mccoy' in the credits, as if that would make him sound more courageous sounding, (It actually sounds more ridiculous) "returns" (where did he go?) in Lighting Carson Strikes Again. In this movie, he must try to find out who framed his brother for a robbery and murder he did not commit. Well, that's the first half of the movie. The brother seems to disappear after the first half (off to L.A. from what I can tell) and then Carson seeks to infiltrate the group to try to stop any future holdups from the gang. This involves him, yes, dressing like a Mexican and sort of talking like a Mexican, cutely switching his words from time to time. How the cowboys, who must have some dealings with Mexicans, let this pass I'll never know. Anyways, Mccoy still can't shoot properly, still has the biggest cowboy hat you'll ever see and still looks that silly way whenever he looks annoyed. This was an OK time-waster.
