Synopsis

Frontier Outlaws
One thing is certain in Frontier Outlaws. Despite evidence to the contrary, Billy Carson (Buster Crabbe) and Fuzzy Q. Jones (Al St. John) do not play the title characters. It's true that Billy joins the outlaws for a spell, but that's only so he can trap them in the act. Outside of the usual sagebrush stuff, the highlight of Frontier Outlaws is a riotous courtroom sequence, presided over by grizzled judge Emmett Lynn. With such villains as Charles King and Jack Ingrim on hand, not to mention two formidable comedy-relief actors (and be assured that Emmet Lynn and Al St. John indulge in scene-stealing aplenty), Buster Crabbe really has to keep his head about him in this 6-reel PRC oater. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Buckskin Lady
Patricia Medina plays the title character in The Buckskin Lady. Medina is cast as female gambler Angela Medley, who is forced by circumstances to align herself with outlaw Slinger (Gerald Mohr). But Angela has never gotten over her love for honest frontier doctor Bruce Merritt (Richard Denning), and at the first opportunity she redeems herself by catching a bullet intended for the doc. Henry Hull delivers the film's most memorable performance as Angela's drunken wretch of a father. Per the title, Buckskin Lady affords the viewer ample opportunity to see Patricia Medina in form-fitting western garb. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Kid Rides Again
In this western, Billy the Kid has been wrongfully arrested for robbing a train. In order to prove his innocence, the Kid breaks out of the pokey and hits the dusty trail to search for the real robbers. Along the way, he discovers an outlaw band impersonating upstanding ranchers. They are the real thieves, and naturally, the Kid brings them to justice. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Light of Western Stars
Previous filmed three times (most recently in 1930), the 1940 Paramount production Light of Western Stars was the latest in the studio's "Zane Grey" series. Victor Jory earns a rare top-billing slot as Gene Stewart, a hard-drinking Westerner who is reformed through the love of Boston debutante Majesty Hammond (Jo Ann Sayers). Along the way, he tries to help Majesty prevent the marriage of her headstrong brother Alfred (Russell Hayden) to the blowzy Flo Kingsley (Ruth Rogers). Noah Beery Jr. offers an unusual characterization as Stewart's Mexican (!) sidekick, while veteran Western hero Tom Tyler essays a meaty character role as a small-town sheriff. Also on hand in a teeny-tiny role is Alan Ladd, on the verge of bigger and better things. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
