Rocky arrives to save the ranch
25 May 2009 | by Henchman_Number1See all my reviews

When Ken Rawlins and his father are both murdered, Rocky Lane hits town to try to save the Rawlins Ranch and its new owner, niece Leslie Rawlins (Mildred Coles). Through an assumed identity and with the aid of cantankerous foreman Nugget Clark (Eddy Waller), Rocky tries to flush out bad guys Oliver Budge (Gene Stutenroth) and his henchmen Sanders (Roy Barcroft) and Sharkey (Dale Van Sickel) to stop their scheme to control the valley.

As usual this entry in the Rocky Lane Series features lots of action and a higher quality feel then might be expected from the limited budget. A lot of the credit on the early Rocky Lanes has to to go to writer Bob Williams who did ten in the series. Williams added unique twists and angles to his scripts not often seen in B-Westerns. While this is one of his more straight-forward efforts, he uses the mistaken identity theme to move the action oriented, one-upsmanship plot along.

Roy Barcroft who plays Henchman Sanders is at his vile back-shooting best in this one. If anybody wonders why Barcroft is considered the iconic B-Western Bad Guy check out Oklahoma Badlands. Committing crimes too numerous to mention, never is Roy better than when he is playing the remorseless, wisecracking action-heavy.

Worth watching if you have an extra 59 minutes.
