Synopsis

Fast Bullets
Stuffed dummies on horseback manage to fool a gang of munitions smugglers in this farfetched low-budget Western from the Reliable company. Tom Tyler stars as a Texas ranger going undercover to infiltrate the aforementioned gang, which is lead by nasty Travis (Al Bridge). The outlaw, however, learns of the ranger's subterfuge and orders him killed. Luckily, Tom's associate, Jimmy (Rex Lease), manages to get help from the ranger captain (William Gould) and the stuffed dummies are send in ahead of the rescue team. Using subterfuge, Travis escapes with Jimmy's blond sister, Joan (Margaret Nearing), but is eventually tracked down by Tom. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Brothers of the West
Even for a Sam Katzman production, the 1937 Tom Tyler western Brothers of the West is remarkably tacky. The steely-eyed Tyler appears in his usual guise of Tom Wade, troubleshooter for the Cattlemen's Protective Agency. He spends most of the film trying to extricate his younger brother Ed (Bob Terry) from the influence of cattle rustler Tracy (Roger Williams). In one deathless (and probably ad-libbed) scene, Tom and heroine Celia (Lois Wilde) are searching the villain's cabin for clues when Tom's horse whinnies plaintively. "Wait a minute", whispers Tom "There's someone out there spying on us. That was my horse?he always tips me off." Producer Katzman also directed, so he had only himself to blame. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
