The time-honored "homesteaders vs. cattlemen" plot device is given another go-round in the Republic western The Cyclone Kid. John James plays Dr. Dawson, a young phsyician who tries to rally the local settlers against the despotic cattle barons. Alas, the good doctor finds himself pitted against his own brother Johnny (Don "Red" Barry), who'd sent him through medical school. At first firmly on the side of the cattlemen, Johnny eventually sees the light and joins his brother in defying his former bosses. Lynn Merrick, as much a fixture of the Don "Red" Barry westerns as Barry himself, is the heroine.
