Review by Hans J. Wollstein

Instead of the usual shootout or horse race, Breed of the Border culminates in a car chase. And at one point, hero Bob Steele exhibits his fencing abilities opposite Fred Cavens, the Hollywood fencing master who here plays one of villain Ernie Adams' internationally flavored henchmen. But apart from these deviations, Breed of the Border remains regular B-Western fare and is actually not one of Steele's more inventive efforts. Petite Maryon Byron, as the girl in the case, was borrowed from Warner Bros., where she played peppy chorines. Nicknamed "Peanuts," Byron seems a bit out of place in the Steele/Bradbury realm.
