Eddie Dean's Final Feature
17 October 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Tresspassing villains run across a local ranch owner in his recently discovered goldmine and promptly kill him in order to try and swindle his heirs out of the ranch and the secret mine.

Luckily for the son and daughter of the rancher, their old friend Eddie Dean is already on his way to the ranch to work as the new foreman and doesn't mind righting a few wrongs in addition to his work duties.

Black Hills is pleasant enough if not particularly memorable entertainment with the requisite amount of gun play and horse riding.

Eddie's always good for a few songs, but in this they seem to have been lifted lifted from previous films!

With the exception of the brief theatrical run of The Night Rider, a twenty-six minute failed TV pilot with Johnny Cash, this was Dean's final appearance in a theatrical motion picture and the final film produced by poverty row studio Producers Releasing Corporation.
