Wyoming Whirlwind
Ostensibly based on a story by pulp writer William Colt McDonald, this minor Western, filmed at Lone Pine, CA, starred Lane Chandler, a former Paramount player. Chandler plays Keen Wallace, a wanted outlaw with a price on his head, who returns to the old homestead only to find his father murdered and the killer (Al Bridge), having forged his victim's last will and testament, residing in his place. Outfoxing the local sheriff (Harry Fox), Wallace (aka the Lone Wolf) not only wins the love of the lawman's pretty daughter (Adele Tracy) but also manages to bring the villain to justice and clear his own name. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Law of the 45's
Based on William Colt MacDonald's Law of the Forty-Fives, this ultra low-budget Beacon Western stars Guinn "Big Boy" Williams and Al St. John as Tucson Smith and Stony Martin, a couple of drifters coming to the defense of elder rancher Hayden (Lafe McKee). Like their neighbors, the rancher and his pretty daughter, Jean (Molly O'Day), have been terrorized by a gang of land grabbers. Tucson and Stony quickly become suspicious of Hayden's attorney, Gordon Rentell (Ted Adams), who seems to know a great deal about the mysterious disappearance of British businessman Sir Henry Sheffield. When the latter (Broderick O'Farrell) is found imprisoned in Rentell's basement, the truth is revealed. Having learned that there is oil in the area, Rentell and his men have been systematically buying up land from their own victims. When the sheriff (Fred Burns) arrives to take Rentell and his men to jail, Tucson reveals that he has become a vigilante after his own father had been murdered. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
