Phobia
18 August 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Lippert Picture starring James Ellison and Russell Hayden concerns a psychological phobia that Ellison has about using a revolver for other than trick shooting in a rodeo. Back in the day his parents were gunned down by the notorious outlaw The Cat who no one knows what he looks like. An interesting idea for a western, especially from a poverty row studio like Lippert.

Despite the phobia and with Hayden selling a bill of goods to the townspeople, Ellison and Hayden are made marshal and deputy to find the notorious Cat. You'll be surprised at who it is.

Hayden with his garrulousness reminds me of Gabby Hayes when the two of them partnered with Hopalong Cassidy. It's entertaining and amusing to say the least.

If some major studio had done Fast On The Draw it might have been worthwhile.
