Movie Info

Cowboy star Bill Elliot makes his first appearance in his familiar guise of "Wild Bill" in Columbia's Taming of the West. When a gang of cattle rustlers knocks off several sheriffs in quick succession, it's up to Wild Bill to get to the bottom of things. The moment he pins on his marshal's badge, our hero is marked for extermination by head villain Rawhide (Dick Curtis). Fortunately, the usually eagle-eyed villains are lousy shots when t comes to bumping off Wild Bill, and justice prevails. Iris Meredith takes a break from Columbia's Charles Starrett series to play Elliot's leading lady, while Dub "Cannonball" Taylor provides dubious comedy relief. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
