Surprisingly good, though flawed
14 June 2019 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

Great supporting cast, including Hank Bell as a sheriff, though as usual uncredited, and Tina Menard as a Mexican spitfire overcome the stock footage at the beginning and the star's fairly inept acting.

Tina Menard was a real Mexican, and it's good to see her role properly filled, rather than by a Gringa with a fake accent.

Reb Russell, the nominal star, had many great qualities: He was athletic, a good cowboy, but maybe he could have given a better performance with a better director.

William A. O'Connor has 10 credits as director, and many, many more as assistant or second-unit director. He was quite inventive and creative with camera placement but not so much with his star.

Oliver Drake has written a good story, and, except for Reb, it is very well presented here.

By the way, even if not very believable as a cowboy star, Reb Russell is likable and it's too bad he wasn't given training and support. He could have become a bigger name.

There is a fairly good print of "The Cheyenne Tornado" at YouTube and I do recommend your giving it a try.
