Ken Maynard & Hoot Gibson.....together again !
14 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This WWII era western quickie features two former cowboy legends in the latter phase of their illustrious cowboy careers . Ken Maynard & Hoot Gibson star in this tale of 2 cowboy heroes versus a crooked Indian agency. Thrown in for good measure are the standard gun-play, fisticuffs and general sagebrush mayhem !

This entry in the Trail Blazers series also features western favorite Chief Thundercloud ( a former screen "Tonto"). The plot is familiar and a little dated by today's standards. Maynard & Gibson tried their best, but by this phase of their careers, their best work was behind them.

Below average....... recommended for die-hard fans only.
