The Three Mesquiteers (w/John Wayne) are trying to save the life of a Robin Hood type (Donald Barry) who has taken it upon himself to try and bring down a town dictator who is forcing the poor to pay for jobs and has banned hunting so that they can't eat. This film in the series is really no better or worse than any other "B" Western but it does have a strong benefit of featuring a terrific performance by Barry who easily steals the show. He manages to be a very likable Robin Hood character and also gets mounds of sympathy due to Barry's performance. The rest is all pretty much standard stuff but having seen over one hundred Wayne films I must say his weakest fight is in this film, which includes him fighting a beanpole of a man who's probably two feet shorter than him.
