Sundown Trail would probably have served as a plot to a Roy Rogers/Dale Evans
type western years later. There is some singing here as the cowboys gather round the campfire and warble a few western ballads. Roy and Dale would have handled the vocalizing better.
As it is this film falls under the funny will provision where only in Hollywood does
someone make out wills like these. Marion Shilling with her lawyer Hooper
Atchley has come west to claim her inheritance. But the will has a few jokers
in the deck such as 50% of the place goes to his foreman Tom Keene and 100% of it if within the next five years she leaves ranch property for more
than 10 days straight. I've often wondered how enforceable these things are
in real life.
In any event Shilling who is most unwilling eventually takes a liking to the
westerner Keene as opposed to that eastern lawyer. Keene also saves her from
making one big mistake about the herd that's on the range now.
This is a passably good B western, but it would have been great with Roy and
