      Plot Summary
      Cole Armin comes to Albuquerque to work for his uncle, John Armin,
      a despotic and hard-hearted czar who operates an ore-hauling freight line,
      and whose goal is to eliminate a competing line run by Ted Wallace and his sister Celia.
      Cole tires of his uncle's heavy-handed tactics and switches over to the Wallace side.
      Lety Tyler, an agent hired by the uncle, also switches over by warning
      Cole and Ted of a trap set for them by the uncle and his henchman Juke Murkil.

      One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949,
      which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution,
      and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since.
      Possibly because of legal complications, this title was not included
      in the original television package, and may never have been actually shown.
      It has since been released by Universal on DVD.

      Albuquerque is a film that has all the elements of a class A western, except one: the story,

      that really belongs to a class B or C.
      That was acceptable at the time the film was made, when people were so thrilled to see a western in color,
      but nowadays it just looks very primitive.
      Nonetheless for people who enjoy old westerns, it is entertaining, the original color and sound are very well kept on the DVD that recently came out. Gabby Hayes is a good sidekick, Lon Chaney is mean as always, and Randolph Scott a bit more cheerful than usual. In a film named Albuquerque you would expect to see something
      that would remind you of the city, but the town that is shown here could be just anywhere.
