Colorado Sundown (1952)
by Hans J. Wollstein review

In its own low budget way, Colorado Sundown has it all: pleasant songs sung by star Rex Allen, one of the best in the genre; an above-average "good cop, bad cop" team of villains in June Vincent and former stuntman Fred Graham; arguably the best natural B-Western sidekick of all times in the delightful Slim Pickens; great additional humor provided by African-American actress Louise Beavers, as heroine Mary Ellen Kay's companion; and the accustomed fight scenes, runaway stages and assorted other mayhem typical of the producer, Republic Pictures, even at this late stage in the game.
