Overview

Returning to Gunsight, AZ, from World War II, Buck Healy (Buck Jones) finds that his younger brother Tom (Thomas Carr) has fallen in with an outlaw gang lead by Murdock (Harry Woods). The latter frames Buck in the robbery of Francisco Del Rey (Hector Sarno), a Mexican rancher whose son (Donald Reed) Buck had saved on the battlefield. Don Francisco's daughter, Juanita (Carmelita Geraghty), is kidnapped along the way, but Buck heroically affects her release and earns her love. Men Without Law was the third of eight Buck Jones Westerns produced by Sol Lesser for release by Columbia Pictures, who took over all production chores thereafter.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Perhaps the best of his initial batch of talking Westerns, Men Without Law positions Buck Jones opposite his favorite nemesis, the cold-hearted Harry Woods, one of the most hissable villains of all time. But as he occasionally would, Jones also inserted quite a bit of humor into the otherwise grim proceedings, and Men features one of the funnier scenes in early sound Westerns. Noting that the deputy sheriff is played by Laurel and Hardy regular Fred Kelsey, an imprisoned Jones proceeds to whistle the team's famous cuckoo theme song whenever Kelsey makes a move.
