"WAYNE PACKS A WALLOP...In Action...In Love!"

  • Director: Edwin L Marin
  • Genre: Action, Western
  • Studio: RKO Radio Pictures
  • Black & White | Duration: 100 Mins

If ever there was a title made for Big John Wayne, this is it. However, the Duke barely gets a look-in, as in reality it's more of a vehicle for his tempestuous co-star Ella Raines, who goes gunning for the Duke in order to woo him. George "Gabby" Hayes is in there, too, in a complex plot in which Wayne is framed for murder as he discovers Ward Bond's crooked plans to steal Audrey Long's ranch. But none of this matters, really. Edwin L Marin's direction is fast-moving, there are two terrific fist fights, and, for those of you who wondered exactly what Wayne got up to during the Second World War, this will answer your question. Incidentally, the screenplay is co-written by Paul P Fix, more usually an actor who often worked with the Duke, most notably in 1967's El Dorado.
