Tim Holt and Richard Martin ride again in the RKO budget western Target. The story is nothing new: Tim (Holt) and Chito (Martin) take on a band of criminals who've been flummoxing local ranchers out of their land. The film's novelty value is the presence of a lady marshal, played by Linda Douglas. In typical 1950s fashion, of course, Douglas isn't quite as effective at keeping the peace as her two male co-stars. The supporting cast of Target is comprised of the usual western regulars, including Walter Reed, Lane Bradford and Riley Hill; also appearing in a sizeable role is John Hamilton, best-known as Perry White on TV's Superman.
