Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The second entry in Buck Jones' Universal western series, When a Man Sees Red casts Jones as the foreman of a ranch owned by a haughty Easterner (Peggy Campbell). Our hero tries to dissuade the pretty owner from taking up with an unsavory character (Leroy Mason), to no avail. Eventually, the lout proves himself to be a thief and a liar, out to wrest the ranch owner's property away from her. The self-sacrificial sending is straight out of Under Two Flags, albeit with happier results. Like the first Universal Jones vehicle, Rocky Rhodes, When a Man Sees Red appears at times to be a leftover Ken Maynard script, hastily retooled for the ol' Buckaroo.
