Overview

Bearing no resemblance to the two previous Westerns of the same title, Under the Tonto Rim retained little more than the title from Zane Grey's 1926 story. Tim Holt and sidekick Richard Martin are operating a stagecoach line. But when a gang of highwaymen steals the Wells Fargo box and abducts passenger Nan Leslie, Holt goes undercover to smoke out the leader, Dennison (Richard Powers aka Tom Keene). Nan is not quite who she presents herself to be, however, and the hero is forced to use trickery to get to the truth. A superior B-Western, Under the Tonto Rim was filmed on-location at Victorville and Lone Pine, CA. Lex Barker, a year away from becoming the screen's tenth Tarzan, appears in a bit part as a sheriff's deputy.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
In order to persuade the Sheriff (Harry Harvey) that he is up to no good, Tim Holt is forced to stage a saloon brawl with sidekick Richard Martin. No punches are pulled and the fight remains an early highlight of this fine RKO Western, which Lew Landers directed with a sure sense for speed and excitement. Holt and Martin didn't really need the Zane Grey trappings -- especially since writer Norman Houston usually threw out most of Grey's original stories -- and Under the Tonto Rim proved the second-to-last Holt Western to bear the pulp writer's stamp.
