Stop the railroad and the telegraph
20 February 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Wild West finds B movie cowboys Eddie Dean and Lash LaRue teaming up as Texas Rangers to find out who's been sabotaging the construction of the railroad and the telegraph. Roscoe Ates is along as a sidekick to both as the film takes on a Three Mesquiteer look.

It gets real personal for the guys when a friend is killed trying to stop these outlaws. As if the villainy isn't bad enough this bunch is also stirring up the Indians as well.

Behind it all is Warner Richmond as self appointed Roy Bean like judge who likes the wide open town he's got with all the payoffs from the various outlaws who frequent his town. Believe me this judge makes Bean look like a doctor of jurisprudence.

With a song of two from Eddie Dean and Lash LaRue doing a few tricks with the bullwhip all kinds of devotees of the B western should like this one. I will say the version I saw was cut by a bout a quarter so you'll have to fill in the blanks.
