Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The first of Tim Holt's 1943 quota of RKO westerns was Fighting Frontier. This time, Holt appears to be cast as a double-dyed villain. Actually, it's all a ruse, cooked up by the Governor to find out the identity of a clever bandit chieftan. It wouldn't be fair to reveal the name of the bad guy, but it's safe enough to report that Ann Summers is the heroine and Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards provides comedy relief. Amidst the shooting and fisticuffs, music fans are treated to two songs, "On the Outlaw Trail" and "The Edwards and the Drews", the latter performed with relish by Cliff Edwards.
