"The King of B-Westerns & Serials...VCI Entertainment ~ Ligh
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 02/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"VCI Entertainment presents "Tim McCoy Double Feature" (Dolby digitally remastered)...relive those thrilling days from the early '30s and '40s when drama took us down the dusty trails and the plains to exciting adventures....some of the best B-Westerns ever to grace the Saturday Matinee Screen......just remember double thrills, chills, mystery and suspense...hitting the bull's eye with excitement...don't miss any of the Tim McCoy features loaded with action that will leave you wanting more of his B-Western adventures

First up of this double feature from Victory Pictures is "Lightning Bill Carson Rides Again" (1938).(58 min)..Under director Sam Newfield, producer Sam Katzman with original story and screenplay by E.R. O'Dasi...the cast include Tim McCoy ( 'Lightning Bill' Carson, posing as Jose a bandit), Joan Barclay (Sally, Paul Smith's Sweetheart), Ted Adams (Broken'Hand' Gannon ), Bob Terry (Paul Smith, Carson's Nephew ), Jane Keckley (Katherine Smith, Carson's Sister ), Forrest Taylor (gunfight/henchman), Ben Corbett (Shorty/henchman), Karl Hackett (Karl/banker), Frank LaRue (Sheriff Armstrong ), James Flavin ( Justice Department Agent ), Slim Whitaker (Hogan, Saloon Owner), Frank Wayne (Bank Cashier). . . . . . . . our story opens when Bob Terry is set up for a robbery and murder, he is the nephew of our hero Tim Mccoy and completely innocent...Tim is called upon by his sister Jane Keckley to come to their aid and prove Terry is not what it seems...the heroine Joan Barclay suspects he has been framed by the local outlaws in town...how will Lightning Bill Carson (Tim McCoy) approach the situation, can he disguise himself once again as a Mexican badman and get in with the gang...watch our local badmen Ted Adams, Reed Howes and Forrest Taylor try to call McCoy's bluff, you're in for plenty of action with our ten gallon hat friend ...another great film performed by many veteran actors during their heyday of the mid '30s.

The second feature is Gail Pictures "End of the Trail" (1932) (60 min)...Under director D. Ross Lederman, Screenplay by Stuart Anthony, photography by Benjamin Kline, ..the cast include Tim McCoy (Captain Tim Travers), Luana Walter (Luana), Wheeler Oakman (Major Jenkins), Wade Boteler (Sgt. O'Brien), Lafe McKee (Col. Burke), Wally Albright (Jimmy Travers), Chief White Eagle (Chief Grey Bear). . . . . . . .our hero Tim McCoy has someone who wants him out of the Army and is framed for selling weapons to the Indians...Wheeler Oakman was a major villain in past films does his best work in this oater with all booing and hissing in every scene from the audience...Lafe McKee plays the Colonel in charge who has McCoy dishonorably discharged but realizes too late McCoy is innocent...can Tim bring the Army to their senses and gain the post as Indian Agent...well, don't leave the theater you're about to find excitement in the last reel in this over the top sound B-Western...the Native Americans had no better ambassador than Tim McCoy, a former Indian language translator in real life...as Tim McCoy speaks passionately about this country's longtime abuse of its native population by breaking treaty after treaty.
.
Special footnote, actor Tim McCoy in real life was a sharpshooter and famed for his fast draw...was an expert on the Old West also an authority on Indian folklore could converse in Indian sign language...McCoy was inducted into the "Hall of Great Western Performers of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum" in 1973, also inducted into "The Cowboy Hall of Fame" in 1974.
