Did You Know?

Trivia

Modern sources include Earl Dwire, Slim Whitaker and Lafe McKee in the cast, but they were not seen in the film. See more »

Goofs

The source of the print provided by Turner Classic Movies is a low contrast 16mm C&C Television Corp. version, from which the C&C logo has been removed & a Radio Pictures logo attached in order to re-establish its RKO identity. But RKO did not use the Radio Pictures logo after 1935, and so whatever revisionist made the selection chose the wrong style. It should be a post 1935 RKO Radio Pictures logo. See more »

Where did you get that hat?
16 January 2017 | by alan-prattSee all my reviews

Chubby George O'Brien - he of the massive over-sized titfer - grins his way though this entertaining B western, clearing the name of the honest banker (was there one?), sorting out dodgy surveyors Bond and Montague and finally winning the hand of Rosalind Keith.

Ray Whitley and the Phelps Brothers are on hand to warble a couple of ditties about life on the prairie and Chill Wills, as sidekick Whopper, tells tall tales presumably intended as comic relief.

The sets are good and the photography is nice: there are even a few plot twists to keep the non-western enthusiast interested. Above average.
