    Initially released as "Born to the West", a pre-"Stagecoach" Wayne stars as an irresponsible young cowboy put in charge of a cattle drive by his cousin (Johnny Mack Brown). Wayne screws up, loses the money from the cattle in a crooked card game, and all sorts of shoot outs between Wayne, cattle rustlers and card cheats resolve the plot in time for Wayne to settle down with Marsha Hunt. It's all briskly paced and lots of fun if not exactly brilliant. Based on a Zane Grey novel.

    Running time is only 55 minuets or so long, and because of this the film relies on the story and in doing so is very successful. A Great Watch.

    One of Duke's top 5 'B' Westerns that he made at Lone Star. Above average tale about Duke becoming a cowboy, and gambling his career in a game of cards.
