Lightning Bill strikes again !
30 April 2008 | by ca-corbettSee all my reviews

Colonel Tim McCoy appears in this enjoyable entry in his Lightning Bill series of fine 1930's B-westerns. McCoy was more than another studio actor stuffed into a ten gallon hat ---- he was the real deal ! His knowledge of the Wild West and experience on the trail again shows through clearly in this fun oater.

McCoy, aided by the comic sidekick Ben Corbett, goes undercover as an oriental to get to the bottom of a border scam. The fights, shootouts and snappy dialogue that ensue make this one of the better entries in Lightning Bill film series.

McCoy was larger than life on and off the screen --and this film will surely be enjoyed by all fans of this towering cowboy star. I recommend this one to all who are nostalgic for this kind of entertaining family film !
