Bad Times for Sundown

Now, I've seen movies about a fellow running into a spot of bad luck, and I've known folk who seem to attract nothing but bad luck, but this fellow Sundown Saunders takes the cake for bad luck. As our adventure opens Sundown Saunders, a ranch foreman is racing his horse against another of the cowhands, and one fellow is taking bets on the race with all the cowhands . . . well, Sundown wins the race but by the time he gets to the gambler the fellow is broke and can't pay Sundown for winning . . . so he signs over the deed to a big ranch that he won in a card game . . . Now . . . the deed to a big ranch sounds like it might be good luck, but just you wait. Sundown gets fired by the sour old rancher he worked for so he heads for Sand City and the ranch he just won . . . on the way he comes across a gal hanging from a runaway horse and he saves her and she is pretty cute, and along with her father are also heading for a ranch they are buying in the same area as Sundown, so they might be neighbors. Sounds pretty good so far, eh? So where is all the trouble? Well, let me tell you . . . before Sundown reaches his ranch he will be framed for shooting a man in the back and soon wanted posters are all over the territory with his picture on them. When Sundown finally gets to his new ranch he discovers that the gal he saved and her father are already there after giving Taggart, our bad guy, a thousand dollars for the ranch. So our hero is wanted for murder, and owns a ranch that was also sold to other folk. Bummer. But wait, bad gut Taggart sees the wad of money that the gal's father has when he pays him for the ranch, and he shoots papa in the back and takes the rest of his money, and Sundown may be blamed for this murder also. It looks like the hangman's noose for Sundown if something doesn't break good for him . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
