Under J.P. McGowan (Director), Burton L. King (Producer), Oliver Drake (Adaptation and Dialogue), J. Wesley Patterson (Story), Edward A.

Tom Tyler the strapping hard riding hero of this oater is mistaken for this outlaw, but he uses it to his advantage to discover who the real culprits of this Poverty Row flick ... stolen bonds is the center of our story and Slim Whitaker is behind all the skullduggery ...our heroine is Alice Dahl the daughter of my favorite sheriff in these parts Lafe McKee ... Tom goes into action and the fun begins on the Monarch Studio lot ------ another great B-Western for Tom Tyler under the Poverty Row Picture banner, proves to be one of his most exciting performances.

Special footnote, actor Tom Tyler (nee Vincent Markowski) born into a Polish-American family in 1903 ... Tyler had a long career in film, stretching from the 1920s to the 1950s, and appeared in many films, most of them westerns such as John Ford's "Stagecoach" (1939) as Luke Plummer and "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" (1949) .Cpl. Mike Quayne, Leader of Paradise River Patrol ... The biggest part of Tyler's career was spent making B-movie westerns, however. Tyler also notably portrayed the Fawcett Comics superhero "Captain Marvel" in the 1941 film serial "The Adventures of Captain Marvel", which was the first film adaptation of a superhero in history. In 1940, he was the Mummy in "The Mummy's Hand"; Lon Chaney, Jr. took over the role and played it in three sequels ... "The Phantom", starring Tom Tyler.In 1943, he played another superhero, in the highly successful "The Phantom", based on Lee Falk's famous comic strip ... Tyler was beset by rheumatoid arthritis in the later part of his career, and was limited to occasional supporting roles often for director John Ford, for whom he had worked in a number of films prior to his illness ... passed away at the age of 50 in 1954 due to heart failure . . . . . . for further information check out Mike Chapman along with Bobby Copeland presents "The Tom Tyler Story: From Cowboy Star to Super Hero", telling the inside story in depth of a clean cut, manly role model that positively impacted a portion of an entire generation of moviegoers...each segment of chapters spells out the two reelers, serials and features, plus dozens of TV shows with a total of 150 plus films...every page breathes life into the story from the authors as only they can deliver through pen and paper...this tribute was written from the heart and it shows ... pick up your copy today from Amazon..
