Movie Info

A decidedly minor entry in Tim McCoy's Western oeuvre, The Whirlwind was released in the middle of McCoy's unsuccessful "straight" melodramas. Tim played Tim (as he almost always did), a rodeo rider returning to his hometown of Sagebrush only to find the place run by power-hungry sheriff Tate Hurley (Matthew Betz). The latter takes umbrage to Tim's meddling in his crooked ways and frames him in a bank robbery. The rodeo rider manages to escape along with sidekicks "Injun" (J. Carrol Naish) and Pat (Pat O'Malley), and sets a trap for his enemy. The stolid McCoy was not really the rodeo type, but his fine acting capabilities remained persuasive even in less than top-notch fare like this.
