ARIZONA WHIRLWIND
Monogram 1944

thumbnail thumbnail

Aging Western stars Hoot Gibson, Ken Maynard and Bob Steele are teamed up as the Trail Blazers in a 1944 "buddy picture" from Monogram, "Arizona Whirlwind."

Filmed at Ernie Hickson's Placeritos Ranch, aka Monogram Ranch (later named Melody Ranch), as well as Corriganville (Simi Valley) and elsewhere in the Santa Clarita Valley, apparently including the Triple A Ranch (Vasquez Rocks).

From IMDB.com:

U.S. marshals Ken, Hoot and Bob stop a gang dressed as Indians from robbing the stage. After getting repairs at the relay station, but before they get to town, another trap is set, but they get away. In town, they search the stage and find nothing. But hidden in the axle grease can are diamonds. Polini (Ian Keith) wants them cut into smaller diamonds so that he can easily dispose of them.
