| A couple of scarlet letters
Though it is not their fault Jeff Donnell and her brother Tommy Ivo are shunned by their townspeople as surely as Hester Prynne was in The Scarlet Letter for a robbery that their father John Gallaudet committed in Outcasts Of The Trail. The only friends that Donnell and Ivo have are Monte Hale and Paul Hurst. Hale is playing Pat Garrett in the days before he became famous shooting down Billy the Kid.

Gallaudet took the rap alone covering for partners Milton Parson and Roy Barcroft. Gallaudet hid the money and now wants to turn it back to the express company, but Parsons and Bancroft have other ideas.

This is a pleasant B western from that premier factory of them, Republic Pictures. Monte Hale was a good western hero who sad to say was never able to climb out of that mold. He also was not fortunate enough to get into television where the B western went during the 1950s. Paul Hurst who did a series of westerns with Hale as a sidekick certainly has a lot of major films in his resume including some outstanding westerns like The Oxbow Incident and The Angel And The Badman.

This film will give you a good idea of the appeal Monte Hale had as a cowboy hero that sadly did not last into television.
