Cardmember Offers



Pinto Canyon
In his final Western for Poverty Row's Metropolitan Pictures, Bob Steele played Bob Hall, a lawman looking into a series of cattle rustlings. The leader of the rustlers, rancher Farley (Ted Adams), hires killer Pete Childers (George Cheseboro) to impersonate a deputy sheriff and gain Sheriff Hall's confidence. The ploy fails and after freeing lovely Helen Jones (Louise Stanley) and her wayward brother, Fred (Kenne Duncan), Sheriff Hall rounds up the gang. Metropolitan Pictures was so ramshackle an outfit that Bob Steele's next employer, the otherwise ill-reputed PRC, seemed almost luxurious in comparison. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Headin' North
Cowboy star Bob Steele looks embarrassed throughout most of Headin' North, as well he should. The film begins conventionally enough, with Steele once again accused of a murder he didn't commit. Hoping to remain in hiding until he can expose the real killer, our hero disguises himself as a vaudeville entertainer, complete with a loud and vulgar "city slicker" outfit. Heroine Barbara Luddy (later a prolific radio actress) speaks for the entire audience when she gives Steele the once-over and exclaims "Where did you get those funny clothes?" Fortunately, Steele regains most of his dignity in a climactic fistfight with the villain. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
