Movie Info

Tom Tyler ground out 19 starring westerns for Reliable Pictures in the mid-1930s, of which Santa Fe Bound is neither the best nor worst. "Our Tom" (as he was known in the trade papers) comes to the aid of heroine Molly Bates (Jeanne Martel), who is in danger of losing her ranch to the villains. Since the chief heavy is played by Richard Cramer, possessor of one of the meanest faces in the movies, it's obvious that Tyler really has his work cut out for him this time. In addition, our hero has been entrusted with a great deal of money by Bate's banker father, a fact that leads the girl to assume that Tyler has stolen the cash. This turns out to be a blessing in disguise when Tyler, posing as an outlaw, infiltrates Cramer's criminal gang.

Audience Reviews for Santa Fe Bound

This 1936 Movie is not a bad one for early era cowboy films. Tom Tyler is the hero cowboy in this story, as he's riding along the trail he comes across a bandit shooting a rancher for his $5000 bank roll (1936 $5000 = 2009 100,000) So Tom being the good cowboy he is shoots the bandit, well rancher dies, but before he does he gives Tom a message. Well Tom assumes the identity of the bandit to try and find out who the bad guys are. And our beautiful leading lady thinks Tom killed her father. My copy of this film came from the Mill Creek Western Classics 50 pack, and the film kept jumping and skipping, but my guess is all copies do this. It had a good story line, but a 2.5 stars as its a 1936 with the film jitters.
