Even for a Sam Katzman production, the 1937 Tom Tyler western Brothers of the West is remarkably tacky. The steely-eyed Tyler appears in his usual guise of Tom Wade, troubleshooter for the Cattlemen's Protective Agency. He spends most of the film trying to extricate his younger brother Ed (Bob Terry) from the influence of cattle rustler Tracy (Roger Williams). In one deathless (and probably ad-libbed) scene, Tom and heroine Celia (Lois Wilde) are searching the villain's cabin for clues when Tom's horse whinnies plaintively. "Wait a minute", whispers Tom "There's someone out there spying on us. That was my horse?he always tips me off." Producer Katzman also directed, so he had only himself to blame.
