Review by Hans J. Wollstein

Arguably the best of Monogram's Jack Randall Westerns, Across the Plains succeeds despite trotting out one of the oldest stories in the B-Western catalogs, the ever-popular "Brothers Separated During an Attack of Their Wagon Train." Although produced as haphazardly as most Monogram oaters, director Spencer Gordon Bennet and his cast traveled to picturesque Lone Pine, CA, and the scenery elevates what would ordinarily be merely humdrum. B-Western regulars Hal Price, as an old wagon master, and Robert Card, as the dastardly villain, add to the overall fun.
