Nominated by some historians as the worst Western of the 1930s, this 55-minute blunder was so inept that several key personel opted for pseudonyms. Leading lady Janet Morgan was actually silent screen flapper Blanche Mehaffey, and screenwriter Oliver Drake sincerely hoped that he wouldn't be recognized under the nom de plume of "Ollie Milliken."
