Boothill Brigade
Boothill Brigade stars Johnny Mack Brown as frontier do-gooder Lon Cardigan. Villainous land-grabber John Porter (Edward Cassidy) spends most of the early reels divesting homesteaders of the hard-earned property. All of this comes to an end when Cardigan looms into view, fists at the ready. Seldom resorting to gunplay, our hero manages to send Porter's minions scurrying, then concentrates on cleaning the main bad guy's clock. Produced by A.W. Hackel for Republic release, Boothill Brigade boasts considerably better cinematography than the usual Hackel product. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Lawless Land
Johnny Mack Brown stars in this middling western entry. The former high-school football hero plays a Texas Ranger, who early in the film rides into a wide-open town. Instead of immediately clearing out the criminal element, Brown characteristically chooses to bide his time, giving the crooks enough rope to hang themselves. Critics were pleased with the film's action content, but took lead-in-lady Louise Stanley to task for adopting a wardrobe and hairdo more suitable to Sunset Boulevard than the Lone Star States. Produced independently by A. R. Hackel, The Lawless Land was released by "the home of the westerns," Republic Pictures. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
