Fun B Western from Castle
Klondike Kate (1943)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Kathleen O'Day (Ann Savage) arrives in a small Alaskan town to claim the bar that her father left her. She soon discovers that it was bought by Jefferson Braddck (Tom Neal) and he's not willing to let it go. Soon the two go into business for each other but this doesn't sit well with Lita (Constance Worth) because she's in love with Jefferson.

KLONDIKE KATE is a low-budget Western from director William Castle and for the most part it's entertaining enough to make it worth watching. At just 64-minutes there's certainly nothing overly detailed here but that's just fine because for a "B" Western this thing works in large part to the cast that is a lot of fun.

Whenever one watches a movie like this you really can't be expecting something by John Ford. For the most part the story itself was decent if not all that original but then again it was good enough to keep you entertained by it. There are the double-crosses that you'd expect but I must say it was a bit of a mystery as to why one of them never gets solved. The film contains some rather bland musical numbers but at least the action is good and yes there's a fun brawl at the end.

The strongest aspect to the film is the cast who are a lot of fun. Savage and Neal have a great chemistry together and the two of them really sell the characters and help keep the film moving. Worth is extremely good in the role of the jealous female and Sheldon Leonard is excellent as the snake villain. You've also got Glenda Farrell in a small role.

KLONDIKE KATE isn't a masterpiece but it's at least an entertaining film that fans of the cast and director should enjoy.
