Twist Ending
Plot-heavy oater that still manages its share of action. Red and Little Beaver are drawn into an elaborate land stealing scheme headed up by town biggie Bill Lambert (Barcroft) who always seems one set ahead. That's not hard since he's got the sheriff, the land commissioner, a gang, and lovely May Barnes (Stewart) helping out. Looks like Red and the forces of good are in big trouble.

There's a good share of hard riding, fast shooting, and one flying fist brawl. Even that old standby location area, the San Fernando Valley, has a few scenic shots to help the eye. At the same time, Lane makes a first-rate sagebrush hero, while the hulking Barcroft shines as a city slicker instead of his usual gangland thug. Add eye-candy Stewart who shows her acting chops, and the 50-some minutes passes pleasurably. But most of all, catch that very unconventional ending that I sure didn't see coming. Kudoes to Republic for adding something different.

A "7" on the Matinée Scale
