Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Charles Starrett, Iris Meredith, Si Jenks, Marc Lawrence, Edward Peil Sr.

Directed by David Selman



Print: black/white

Runtime: 56 min.

Genre: western

Print Quality: B



Columbia Pictures' newest cowboy hero, Charles Starrett, played just that in this fanciful

Western which teamed him for the first time with blonde leading lady Iris Meredith. They

would go on to make 19 additional Westerns together, one of the longest runs in B-Western

history. Starrett played Spencer Yorke, a cowboy turned movie star who declines to sign a

new contract with Hollywood producer Jack Kingswell (Landers Stevens). "Retiring"

instead to Arizona under the assumed name of George Weston, Yorke arrives in the ghost

town of Taylorsville just in time to save real estate proprietress Mary Baker (Meredith) and

her kid brother Jimmy (Wally Albright) from a runaway team. Kidnapped by three outlaws on

the lam, Jimmy is rescued by Yorke who arrives armed with a machine gun. After killing the

villains in a hail of bullets, Yorke reveals his identity to an excited Jimmy and, now a real-life

hero, is awarded a new and much more advantageous contract by producer Kingswell. One

of the most talented actresses to grace B-Westerns, Iris Meredith appeared opposite

William "Wild Bill" Elliott in four oaters and one Western serial (Overland With Kit Carson,

1939) in addition to her 20 with Starrett.
