Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Johnny Mack Brown's Trails End was barely distinguishable from his other Monogram releases of 1949. In fact, more than one reviewer noted that even the background music was the same as in previous Brown vehicles. Once again, Johnny and his saddle pal Alibi (Max Terhune) ride into a frontier town where lawlessness reigns unchecked. Once again, Johnny rescues the leading lady (Kay Morley) from greedy villains. And once again, the aging, increasingly portly Brown relinquishes the romantic responsibilities to a younger, leaner man, in this instance Douglas Evans. Max Terhune's routines with his dummy Elmer and the spirited villainy of Myron Healey briefly lift Trails End from the norm.
