The teaming of Tex Ritter and "Wild Bill" Elliott gives this B-western a bit of an edge, but the results still don't rise above the routine. A highlight comes when Elliott is captured by the Bad Guys and subjected to a vigorous whipping across his bare back. (This bit of "beefcake" is something of a rarity for the Missouri-born "Wild Bill" who, despite an attractive physique, usually kept his shirt on.) The camera remains focused on Elliott's face and on his uplifted arms which have been tied to a tree branch. (No, the armpits have not been shaved.) Elliott's grimaces of pain, complete with gritted teeth, are quite convincing each time the lash strikes, which may help account for the fact that this scene ranks 55th in the book, "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies." Alas, most VCR prints of "Vengeance of the West" seem to be of poor quality.
