U.S. Marshal Robert Shayne seeks vengeance in this episode of Warner Brother's SANTA FE TRAIL series of short subjects.
Once upon a time, all movies were what we call short subjects nowadays. Eventually features came into being, and while B westerns remained fairly short, from 49 to 65 minutes, A westerns could run considerably longer .... and be a lot more expensive to produce. With this series of short westerns, Warners tried the interesting experiment of cutting down their old A westerns, writing a new script -- often, as with this one, by pulp writer Ed Earl Repp -- and telling in 20 minutes what once might have taken four times as long. Thus, the expensive, spectacular sequences might be reused, and a cheap short subject could be rented out for a flat fee. In this case, the story and big sequences are from 1936's SONG OF THE SADDLE.
Robert Shayne was the perennial star of these shorts. People of my age better remember him from the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN show, where he played Inspector Henderson.
