Motor Patrol (1950) as Associate Producer

Hostile Country (1950) as Assoc exec
The first of a series of six westerns produced by Ron Ormond for Lippert distribution starring two ex-Hopalong Cassidy sidekicks, which means it also is the first one in the series that was a direct swipe from one of A. H. Hackel's mid-30's Supreme westerns - in this case 1935's "No Man's Range" with Bob Steele - in which Ron Ormond and Maurice Tombragel never looked back while giving themselves an "original" writing credit. Shamrock (Jimmy Ellison) is summoned to the ranch of his stepfather Henry Oliver (George Chesebro) whom he has never met. He still hasn't met him when he gets there because Knowlton (George J. Lewis) shows up posing as Oliver. Lucky Hayden (Russell Hayden) is along as Shamrock's sidekick or, to be more specific, the role played by whisker-faced Buck Connor in the original.

With his identity now revealed, Shamrock organizes a posse and they all head out after them.
41.
I Shot Billy the Kid (1950) as Executive Producer
Another in the series of Don Barry starring films (who NEVER used Don 'Red' Barry as his billing except in his series of Republic westerns from 1940-44 and the serial "The Adventures of Red Ryder"), financed by Robert L. Lippert and produced by William Berke all as A Donald Barry Production in the late 40's and early 50's, this one pretty much follows the semi-inaccuracies and myths found in the vast majority of the films about Billy the Kid, while adding a narration - a trend found in many B-westerns of this period evidently under the mistaken impression it would add some class to the proceedings. It didn't. And having a 38-year-old actor play an outlaw who died when he was 21 gave Barry an opportunity to darken his hair to nearly black and pull out, what appears to be, the forelock hairpiece he used for the Red Ryder serial in 1940 to make him look more like the character as drawn by Fred Harman. It didn't make him look much like the real Billy the Kid, though.

When a dizzying robbery takes place in the Orthodox Jewish diamond district, a flawless 86-carat gem, the size of an infant's fist, is lifted in the snatch. Taking it to London, the diamond's thief and courier, Franky Four Fingers arrives in the city as a stopover en route to New York to deliver the huge diamond to his bigwig crime boss, Avi. But because Franky can't resist temptation and London is a town with its share of illegal trade, a small crowd of miscreants and malefactors eventually ends up chasing each other and the whereabouts of the diamond. These include: Doug the Head, a jeweler who pretends he's Jewish because it's good for business; Boris the Blade, a Russian gangster with a deserved reputation for being impossible to kill; Bullet Tooth Tony, a legendary hard guy and Brick Top, perhaps the scariest of the lot.
