By the time Law of the West came out in 1949, Monogram's Johnny Mack Brown westerns were beginning to all look alike. Here as elsewhere, Brown plays a marshal who comes to the rescue of the Downtrodden. This time, it's a group of ranchers who are being victimized by a crooked real estate agent. One novel twist finds Brown's comic sidekick Max Terhune coming to the rescue by utilizing his skills as a ventriloquist. Bill Kennedy is the villain, Gerry Patterson the heroine, and western stalwarts Marshall Reed, Kenne Duncan and Bud Osborne go through their usual bad-guy motions.
