While watching this tonight, I realized that I had watched it once before, in July of 2008. I couldn’t remember a jot of it, and I was surprised — until I remember that, last time, I had a 3-month-old girl on my lap taking a rare nap.

Director is Archie Mayo, who Starrett never worked with again, but at least one Other Cowboy star did. That was Dick Foran, playing with Humphrey Bogart in both 1939’s Black Legion and 1936’s Petrified Forest.
