, the third of Tom Tyler's 17 "B" Westerns released by Reliable Pictures over a two-year period, ranks among the best starring vehicles made by this popular movie cowboy. It's quite a novelty to see the brawny, darkly handsome Tyler decked out in flamboyant Mexican garb - sombrero and all.
Stars Tom Tyler, Lillian Gilmore, Charles Whitaker; Directed by Harry S. Webb.
