Trail Guide Reviews

  • Apr 19, 2016

    Tim Holt, once again appearing as Tim Holt, and his loyal sidekick play a couple of trail guides who take homesteaders into unfriendly territory in this standard ranchers vs. settlers western story. Holt westerns were never particularly memorable but this one seems particularly bland and is only made watchable by Holt's strength as an actor, even in corniest of westerns. This film actually did so poorly that it triggered the decline of Holt's long career as a b-western movie star.
