Cast: Ethel Wales, Robert Ellis, Al Bridge

 
In his fourth of six inexpensive Westerns for Allied Pictures in 1932, veteran cowboy ace Hoot Gibson played a foreman inheriting his place of employment along with the late owner's daughter (Marion Shilling). She finds him uncouth and not worth her while at first, but hatred of a common enemy, unscrupulous banker Robert Ellis, brings them together.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
A fairly amusing Hoot Gibson oater, A Man's Land was penned by the prolific Adele Buffinton, who borrowed certain plot devices from her earlier The Phantom City, a 1928 Ken Maynard vehicle remade with John Wayne in 1932 as Haunted Gold. Comedy relief was provided by longtime Gibson associate Roy "Skeeter Bill" Robbins as a lovesick ranch hand, and Ethel Wales as the heroine's aunt. Yet another Gibson protégé, Fred Gilman, appeared briefly as a deputy sheriff. Happily, A Man's Land is without the stereotypical African-American "humor" that today makes both The Phantom City and Haunted Gold difficult to watch for modern audiences.
