The little FBO studio always liked to cast child actors in their westerns, assuming that kids liked watching other kids have more fun than they could ever hope for themselves. The theory was shaky at best, but the studio certainly hit pay-dirt adding little Frankie Darro to their Tom Tyler westerns. The pair worked well together, and Darro served to humanize the almost impossibly handsome Tyler. The charming team was the only selling point of The Cowboy Musketeer, a mediocre outing about a cowboy saving his female employer from a villainous foreman. The story (ostensibly an original from the pen of screenwriter Buckleigh Fritz Oxford) had been told many times before and would be dusted off again and again in the future.
