Feud of the Trail
Produced back-to-back with Mystery Range (1937), this Tom Tyler Western was the first of Sam Katzman's Victory Pictures productions to be distributed by Monogram. Tyler plays Tom Wade, an agent for the cattlemen's association who bears a striking resemblance to dying outlaw Jack Granger. Tom assumes the dead desperado's identity, aiding Pa Granger (Lafe McKee) in his feud with nasty neighbor Lance Holcomb (Roger Williams) and Holcomb's even nastier mother (Vane Calvert). The bone of contention is a piece of property containing a gold mine. Tom, as Jack, settles the score with the Holcombs, and, revealing his true identity, wins Sheila Granger's love -- a rather kinky denouement considering Tom's close resemblance to the girl's dead brother. Sheila was played by Harlene Wood, who, as Harley Wood, had starred in the notorious exploitation-melodrama Marihuana (1935). ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Fighting Hero
Having starred in two earlier Westerns produced by Harry S. Webb, Tom Tyler signed with Webb's new company Reliable, where the former silent star went on to make 18 inexpensive but well-made oaters. The first in the series, Fighting Hero, cast Tyler as Tom Hall, a fugitive from justice rescuing a young Mexican woman, Conchita (Renee Borden), from a murder conviction. He falls in love with the girl, but he then overhears her apparently plotting with the leader of a gang of stage-robbers. As it turns out, Conchita is only looking out for Tom's welfare, and with her help he is soon able to apprehend the gang. When the sheriff (Tom London) arrives, Tom reveals himself to be an undercover agent for the Wells Fargo Company. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
