At least 10 percent of the 58-minute Eddie Dean western Shadow Valley is comprised of stock shots from earlier Dean oaters. This time, the star plays as U.S. marshal who comes to the rescue of the standard damsel in distress (Jennifer Holt, sister of Tim and daughter of Jack). The double-dyed villain (George Cheseboro) is a crooked lawyer (and former train robber) who wants to lay claim to the heroine's ranch. What the lawyer knows, but the girl doesn't, is that the land is rich with gold. Roscoe Ates goes through his usual wheezy stuttering routines as Eddie Dean's sidekick Soapy.
