Review by Hans J. Wollstein

Although nothing to get too excited about, this minor but fairly entertaining B-Western is enlivened somewhat by the appearances of a couple of actors rarely found among the sagebrush: Mischa Auer and Dwight Frye. Neither is as flamboyant as one would have expected, however, the over-the-top prize in The Western Code instead going to Wheeler Oakman, who could sneer with the best of them and is just this side of being ludicrous. Both hero Tim McCoy and frequent leading lady Nora Lane behave as they usually did, which is just fine.
