Once Ken Maynard proved his mettle as a cowboy star, Rayart Films decided to test out the potential of Maynard's brother Kermit. Billed as "Tex" Maynard, Kermit made his starring debut in the not-bad oater Gun Hand Garrison. The plot is the old saw about a gang of outlaws who frame innocent bystanders for their crimes. Eventually, of course, the villains are hoist on their own petard, but for four of the five reels they have a lot of fun literally getting away with murder. Backed up by the "Rayart Rough Riders," Kermit Maynard was an impressive screen presence -- and, as time would prove, he was actually a better actor than his more famous sibling.
