Quick Take: The Bronze Buckaroo (Richard C. Kahn, 1939)

Richard Kahn's The Bronze Buckaroo is perhaps the only Western in which ventriloquism saves the day. Amiable enough, and nice to see a standard low-budget oater with an all-black cast. There are funny moments sprinkled throughout, my favourite of which was the moment one of the protagonists exhorts his six-shooter not to miss: "I want to send a message, and I don't want them to talk back!" The gun delivers.

The reason I never win the lottery is that I would use the money to reboot "Sledge Hammer". Now thanks to you and R.C. Kahn, I know I'd hire Idris Elba in the title role.
