The Utah Kid 1944
Description: The Utah Child was a late entry in Monogram's "Trail Blazers" series. These low-budget westerns usually featured three cowboy stars; this time, however, there are only two, Bob Steele and Hoot Gibson. Though neither star is a spring chicken, Steele is the younger of the two, so he's the "Utah Kid" by default. The plot, involving a gang of crooks who go around fixing rodeo results, was designed to accommodate yards and yards of stock footage.
Released: 26 Aug 1944 Director: Vernon Keays Writers: Victor Hammond (screenplay) Actors: Hoot Gibson, Bob Steele, Beatrice Gray, Ralph Lewis Genres: Sport, Western

When he takes on a gang of crooked gamblers, Nightlander is shot down in cold blood, compelling frontier doctor John Poole (Johnny Mack Brown) to place his Hippocratic oath on the back burner and strap on the shootin' irons.

The Utah Kid Reviews:

An expert rider infiltrates a gang of rodeo crooks.Reviewer boblipton's correct—this is a lesser matinée western. But it does have the nice Bob Steele. He may be only 5'5'', however his short stature is pure bundled energy. Nobody in these oaters puts more vim and vigor into difficult riding and choreographed brawls than Steele, and he makes audiences trust it. Both are on nice display here. For Gibson, I expect the film was above all a payday since he does tiny more than observe and comment. But then he is well into middle-age (52).Boblipton's also right about the poorly blended stock footage. Still, for those who play pageantry, it's fun watching all those vintage cowboys and Indians parade across the rodeo grounds from a time long ago when they were likely the true thing. Anyhow, I liked scoping out the winsome Beatrice Gray who is quite lively and charming. So, despite the terrible production values and leaden script, there remain few compensating features.


Hoot Gibson plays the old Marshall who sends Bob Steele out to deal with some terrible 'uns who have some sort of scam going on in rodeos in this competent but uninspiring B western from Monogram. It's clearly intended for the Saturday matinée market. Hoot doesn't receive to do much, mostly stand around and react, but Bob Steele is okay as the feller who speaks low, speaks slow and doesn't tell much. There are a couple of nice action sequences -- the stagecoach sequence has some fine riding and stunt work -- but the overall result is that it's largely a waste of time eked out with stock footage from another western films, some of which look like they were pulled out Edison actualities from the 1900s and fitted out with random crowd noises. Efforts to match movie stocks effect in cinematography that is blurry and patchy.Even for the cheaper B westerns of the era, this one is difficult to take. I'd avoid it.
