Storyline

Commissioner Tredwell is the law of the land and he gets whatever he wants with the help of hired guns and lackey lawyer Conners. The only one who publicly stands up to Tredwell is Beecham of the Clarion. Beecham has his paper burned to the ground and when he starts a petition to make Wyoming a state, taking the power away from Tredwell, he is killed. But when Kansas Kate comes in to visit her son Conners, she sees what is going on and she takes over the paper and keeps the pressure on Tredwill. With this Conners has mixed emotions, but the boys do everything they can to protect Kate and the paper. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Three Mesquiteers go Gangbusters !!
9 May 2008 | by ca-corbettSee all my reviews

The long-running Mesquiteer series went through a number of lineup changes throughout the years, while usually maintaining a winning formula. This cowboy programmer finds the trio of Bob Livingston, Rufe Davis and Bob Steele out to defend a threatened newspaper owner , set upon by a nefarious crook and prairie ruffian.

Steele and Livingston handled the action scenes well in this one, showing their usual talent at fisticuffs. Davis provides good comic relief here, although I prefer Max Terhune in the sidekick role.

This film was standard, but enjoyable. When viewed is its context as a B-movie matinée film, this one can be a fun evening of classic western entertainment. Happy Trails !!
