Robert Preston Meservey was a very private person who loved to act. When he began acting in motion pictures, the studio forced him to get rid of his last name, so he acted as Robert Preston his entire career. Cecil B. DeMille featured Robert Preston in several movies, and DeMille became one of the only Hollywood people that Robert Preston openly and publicly despised.

Robert Preston’s fame on Broadway eclipsed his movie career, earning two Tony Awards for Best Actor. Preston enjoyed his movie roles in “B” movies like this one as much or more than his big budget movie roles. In his big budget movie roles, he seldom had the best role for an actor, but in the “B” movies, he often had the best role in the story, like his role in this adventure.

Two ranching brothers, Tom and Jeff, are trying to operate a cattle ranch in Texas, but their neighbors are slowly rustling their cattle, letting the two brothers know that they are not welcome in the valley. As our adventure opens, Kid Wichita, played by Robert Preston, rides into the ranch, promising to help the two brothers solve their problems with the neighboring ranchers.

The only problem with Kid Wichita helping them is that he is a known outlaw, using his gun for justice any time he likes. The two brothers do not like the lawless way that Wichita is helping them, but they do enjoy the justice that he is bringing to their fight. Is it right for Wichita to take the law into his own hands, or is he just another outlaw fighting with gunsmoke instead of law and order? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
