| A Little Gem
Paramount has produced a neat little gem of a "B" western, worth seeing if only for a truly impressive cast, including two Oscar winners (Broderick Crawford and Anthony Quinn) and two other Oscar nominees (May Robson and Akim Tamiroff). Add in a virtual who's who of character actors including three walk-of-fame stars (Ellen Drew, John Howard and Monte Blue), Charley Grapewin (The Wizard of Oz), and Eddie Foy, Jr. (Yankee Doodle Dandy) among others, and you have lots to watch for in a relatively short picture.

Filmed on location in Arizona and set in the contemporary (for 1940) West, the usual elements of a cowboy adventure all appear: cattle rustlers and their ruthless leader, the beautiful rancher's daughter, the dominating landowner (this time, a formidable May Robson), an undercover lawman, the dishonest townsman, and a climactic shootout. And the hero gets the girl, naturally. An unusual ranch house/castle/fortress originally built to withstand Indian attack has an old dark house feel. The only real wrinkle is seeing the Texas Rangers in a modern office building, using motor vehicles (sometimes) and communicating by radio.

Well worth spending just over an hour for an afternoon's entertainment.
