Editorial Reviews

starring Tom Keene

(1937) Farmers are being terrorized by riders at night. The town doctor (Keene) stops the townsfolk from forming a vigilante group. They reward him by making him sheriff and dumping the whole mess in his lap.

Tex Ralph's Westerns #46

B-Westerns strongly evoked traditional American values - honesty, courage, hard work, fair play, and that a good little man can always kick the butt of a bad big man.

In the darkness of the theater and afterwards, out in the Saturday afternoon sunlight playing cowboys and Indians, long before political correctness changed the name of our favorite boyhood game, we knew we were right and lived in the greatest land of all... because Gene and Roy and Hoppy and all our other heroes said so and showed us how to live a good moral life by riding hard, drawing fast, and never, EVER stealing a horse or rustling a cow.

"Tex Ralph's Westerns" is a weekly TV show on cable channel 20, URTV, in Asheville, North Carolina. Author Ralph Roberts chooses exciting B-Westerns and hosts each episode. Currently there are 53 movies in this series, all available on DVD.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant thirties' b-movie March 4, 2006
Format:DVD
Night riders shoot, scare, threaten and terrorize farmers in Iowa during the Civil War. The riders are in the employ of an unscrupulous easterner - might as well say furriner. You can't miss him, he's the clean shaven one in the brocade vest with the best looking blonde in the movie hanging off his arm. The bad guy, Abbott (Robert Fiske,) would just as soon cheat and swindle the town out of their land, but the backshooting ambushes he's had to resort to have been working out pretty well. So well that the town's doctor, played by over-the-title star Tom Keene, decides the only way to bring peace to the valley is to renounce violence and create a county claims association. The Homestead Act is about to be passed, and the law will then take care of scalawags like Abbott as soon as the Act becomes law. The town folk grudgingly agree to the doc's plans until one of the town leaders is gunned down in broad daylight.

THE LAW COMMANDS is a b-movie with a strong script, interesting cast, and a lead star who's obligingly off-screen for about a quarter of the movie, hightailing it out to the capital to enlist the governor's assistance. Made it 1937, the story of farmers getting kicked off their land for reasons beyond their control must have been a theme the audience could relate to. Keene was a popular movie cowboy in the thirties, at least in b-movie westerns - he made seven movies in 1937. He doesn't ride his horse much, save the heroine, blaze guns, or get in a lot of fist fights. Kind of reminds me of a young Dick Powell, which ain't a bad think if you can sing and joke about being the `leading juvenile' this season, as Powell did in the brilliant `42nd Street' a couple of years earlier. Not so great when you're in Harry Carey and William S. Hart territory.
