Overview

A decidedly minor entry in Tim McCoy's Western oeuvre, The Whirlwind was released in the middle of McCoy's unsuccessful "straight" melodramas.

The latter takes umbrage to Tim's meddling in his crooked ways and frames him in a bank robbery. The rodeo rider manages to escape along with sidekicks "Injun" (J.
