Tex Ralph's Westerns #25
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.

The visual and audio quality of this film are both poor and the editing leaves something to be desired. The human players take a back-seat to the animal stars, who appear in nearly every scene. Despite their leads' importance to the film, the trainers and crew seemed to have little or no regard for their welfare. Both dogs and cougars underwent a great deal of stress and dangerous situations to achieve many of the shots.
Trailing the Killer is one of the movies profiled in the book Wonder Dogs: 101 German Shepherd Dog Films, along with dozens of other early dog films from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s.
