Author Zane Grey was the inspiration for over one hundred Western Films and Mark of the Avenger is one of the best films based from Grey’s novels. It’s unusual in that the hero, played by the rugged Douglas Dumbrille, is no goodie-two-shoes but a man with a checkered past who has turned to crime. An outlaw from his home town where he’s wanted for a murder he didn’t commit, Dumbrille sneaks back in to town to see his daughter, who he discovers is hopelessly caught up in the sinister plots of bad men. What follows is a whirlwind of gun slinging action as Dumbrille makes to straighten everything out by any means necessary. Mark of the Avenger is a tempest of classic Western mayhem.
Honor of the Range is a masterful showcase for cowboy superstar Ken Maynard. A jack of all trades, Maynard employs his trick riding, singing, multiple character playing, and even dancing in this dark and thrilling Western adventure. Maynard stars in the film twice as twin brothers Ken and Clem: one upstanding, one shifty and possibly crazy. When Clem helps outlaw villain Rawhide (Fred Kohler) steal money from Ken, Ken must tackle both this sinister gangster and his own brother! Maynard plays both sides beautifully. And speaking of beauty, this film has some of the better cinematography in a 1930’s Western. The end of this film, involving a furiously played Wurlitzer organ, has become famous and doesn’t fail to thrill to this day. Honor of the Range is a power packed ride through the shadows in the Old West!

Dude Bandit is an archetypal Hoot Gibson western utilizing his great skills as an actor and cowboy. Gibson is beloved by classic western film fans for being a legitimate cowboy who could actually ride, shoot, and fight with the best of them. Here in one of his later films, Gibson cleverly tricks the bad guys by pretending to be a nincompoop to get his enemies to drop their guards. In the midst of ferreting out a murderer and uncovering his plot, Gibson also becomes smitten with the gorgeous Gloria Shea before the explosive conclusion. All in all, Dude Bandit is top choice western film fare.
As the tumbleweeds drift slowly by their ranch, and the rooster greets the morning sun, an old civil war veteran and his beautiful young niece don’t know they’re besieged by enemies. They don’t know because, in Guns of the Law, their enemies all pretend to be their friends! Fortunately for them, this film stars the Texas Rangers with Dave O’Brien and James Newill who are out to protect honest people. The classic beauty Jennifer Holt is the niece, and she employs the Texas Rangers to help save them from greedy con artists who would swindle them out of their land. And as much as the Rangers prefer diplomacy, this one breaks out into a vicious explosion of gunfire! Guns of the Law is a taut, fast paced Western eruption of action.
Built around the real life great flood of the Mississippi in 1937, Gunsmoke Ranch is a rollicking good time in the Old West. Starring The Three Mesquiteers, who were the basis for The Three Amigos, Gunsmoke Ranch is chock full of sarcasm, gags, guns, and action. When evil politicians try to profit off the floods by swindling people out of their land, it’s up to cowboy heroes Robert Livingston, Ray “Crash” Corrigan, and Max Terhune to put things to rights. Utilizing actual footage from the floods, as well as authentic costumes, Gunsmoke Ranch is a time warp back to the thirties that will leave audiences drenched with early twentieth century western culture.

In an engagingly strange hybridization of science fiction and western films, Ghost Patrol plants cowboy hero Tim McCoy in the middle of a bizarre mess: airplanes keep disappearing over an unremarkable stretch of land. Simultaneously Claudia Dell, the daughter of a missing scientist, figures out that her father’s latest invention could be used to bring down the airplanes. Both McCoy and Dell will have to contend with sinister gangsters who are using Dell’s father’s ray gun to shoot down any aircraft! McCoy is a treat, as always, and Ghost Patrol is a camp sensation with all its whizzing and whirring gadgets intermixed with spurs and cowboy hats. Actually, the contraptions in the film were made by Kenneth Strickfaden, who worked on movie electronics for his career, including the freaky scientific equipment in the original Frankenstein.
An extremely popular Western Movie franchise, The Three Mesquiteers films featured a trio of cowboys who would often battle more modern elements than in traditional old west stories. Here in Ghost Town Gold, Ray “Crash” Corrigan and buddies Max Terhune and Robert Livingston team up to keep an innocent man convicted of theft out of jail. It doesn’t hurt the trio’s motivation that the accused man’s daughter is the stunning Kay Hughes. To further confuse matters, there’s a crazy old miner who “haunts” the town with booby traps and scare tactics. So the Three Mesquiteers will have to do what they do best to get through all these obstacles: shooting, brawling, and more shooting. Ghost Town Gold is chock full of Wild West fun and excitement.
Not your average Western flick, The Fighting Stallion is a cowboy film nuanced with heart and soul. Bill Edwards stars as Lon Evans, a World War II veteran who decides to become a rancher. Edwards soon learns that he will eventually become blind, and sets off trying to adapt his life. On the ranch, he befriends a wild, unbroken horse who becomes his seeing-eye-horse! What follows is Edwards’ struggle with blindness, his strained relationship with a nurse he falls in love with, and other ranchers who don’t think his horse is safe. Tense, dramatic, and emotional, The Fighting Stallion brings real character and feeling to the often cartoon-like Old West. And not to be missed is a tremendous fight between horses!
