Boss Of Bullion City casts Johnny Mack Brown with sidekick Fuzzy Knight heading to Bullion City with the intention of setting up a newspaper. After a couple incidents, Brown's pretty convinced that the boss of the place and the sheriff Harry Woods are at the bottom of all the crime in the area. Now to prove it.

I saw a most abbreviated version of the film so going by what I did see it was rather sloppily put together. No doubt this was done for television. Possibly if an intact director's cut print is available it might raise Boss Of Bullion City a notch or two.

Johnny Mack Brown's southern drawl was right at home in westerns and he used to his best advantage. Fuzzy Knight who can be entertaining was singularly unfunny in this film. His encounter with a bear trap and dynamite was so inept I kept hoping he'd get blown up. Later when he's forced to ride bareback and smears glue on the horse's back so he can stay on smacked of cruelty to animals.

Still Johnny Mack Brown sits tall in the saddle with two leading ladies, Nell O'Day and Maria Montez before she went Middle Eastern. Fans of Brown should be pleased.
