Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Orphan of the Pecos is one of the eight Tom Tyler westerns produced by Victory Pictures during the 1937-38 season. Victory was owned by legendary fast-buck entrepreneur Sam Katzman, who also directed this particular film. Tyler is cast as Tom Wade, an agent of the Cattlemen's Protection Agency; this time, he's after the man who killed his parents. Like most of the Victory productions, Orphan of the Pecos has a script seemingly made up on the spur of the moment, compelling Tyler to mouth some bizarre ad-libs. Tom Tyler was seen to better advantage in later years as a character actor and villain in both westerns and contemporary films.
