The Fugitive
In this western, a hero is arrested and tossed in the pokey. He and a renowned mail thief escape together. It is soon revealed that the hero is only masquerading as a crook; in reality, he is a Secret Service agent. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The second of four inexpensive Westerns starring Rex Bell, Ruth Mix, and Buzz Barton, Gunfire seems to have offered employment to nearly every B-Western player not otherwise engaged. Bell and Mix (Tom's daughter) play Jerry Dunbar and Mary Vance, partners in the Double D Ranch. The ranch is also home to Danny (Barton), a kid whom Jerry has rescued from crooked gambler Les Daggett (Lew Meehan), and Sally Moore (Mary Jane Irving), Daggett's stepdaughter, who has refused to marry nasty Alex McGregor (Ted Adams). While a jealous Mary is quietly seething over the presence of Sally, the Double D barn is set ablaze by the mad McGregor clan, who desires the property, and Jerry is framed in the killing of another neighbor. Almost lynched -- twice -- Jerry and Danny arrive back at the still burning Double D just in time to save Mary from the lecherous Dan MacGregor (Philo McCullough). The nasty McGregor family finally rounded up, Jerry proposes to Mary -- forced at gunpoint by nutty Aunt Lydia (Fern Emmett). Gunfire was produced by Marion H. Kohn and Alfred T. Mannon for low-budget Resolute Pictures as part of a series of six Westerns. But due to a glut on the market and a less than enthusiastic response from exhibitors, only four films were ultimately released. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
