A Deputy Marshal has to fight against some gangsters who want to to take land from farmers in the area of a planed railroad.
Lippert Pictures produced in Deputy Marshal a fine B western that has a nice touch of mystery about it. The film was a joint project for Jon Hall and Frances Langford who were married at the time. Langford got a couple of western type songs to sing and I'm sure that was something she insisted on before doing the film.

This fun film is a western version of "<em>The Taming of the Shrew</em>," with the Shrew in question being the glorious, yet underrated Mary Beth Hughes, queen of the bitchy blonde B-girls. George Montgomery makes a pleasant enough leading man, but let's face it, the main reason to watch is Mary Beth's pouty lips, hands on hips, and diva like attitude.

Greetings! I run a site as a sole-proprietor called Mayda Mart (https://maydamart.com). Along with things like paper crafts, personalized art and other odds and ends, my biggest passion is my vintage/retro movies (public domain, of course), cartoons, animations, etc.
Being new here, I need to learn the ropes, but I hope visitors who find me will at the very least, enjoy the content. I'm hoping to bring on a few smiles, maybe even some hearty laughs, some good memories (for those of use who had the privilege to grow up in the greatest country in the world - when it was truly GREAT!).
So call me retro, vintage, old school, old-fashioned, old lady - or just plain old if you want, just let me try to "entertain you", if even a little bit.
Godspeed my fellow BitChute users. Hope to see you around.
