Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Between 1934 and 1936, Producer/director Bernard B. Ray ground out 19 westerns starring flinty-eyed Tom Tyler. 1936's Roamin' Wild was neither the best nor worst; if you liked Tyler, you'd like the picture. The title is an apt description of the plot, which roams from one wild fistfight or gun duel to the next, with little rhyme or reason. Tyler upholds his dignity throughout, even when the other actors muff lines and the sound quality wavers between adequate and tin-can-and-a-string. The photography is gorgeous, especially when seen in a good print.
