| a western, with counterfeit money
Mint worker Pat Doyle (John St. Polis) is kidnapped by a gang of outlaws, and forced to make counterfeit bill blanks for a gang of thieves. Tim Hayes (Tim McCoy) is sent to track down where the bills are coming from. It all runs like an episode of "Dragnet", but its okay. Some terrible acting by Doyle's "wife" (Suzanne Kaaaren) when she goes storming into the Bureau's office and demands action. The usual oat-burner horse chases, as they go after the gang. Filmed at Corriganville... if you haven't read up on it or visited, it has a fun history, and now its a county park! The actors and director (Sam Newfield) had all started in silents, so they knew the business well enough. Newfield and his brother were the big cheeses at PRC Pictures for a time. The usual western. It's a very okay shortie, at 53 minutes. It's exactly what you think its going to be.
