William Beaudine - Tough Assignment (1949)

Plot Synopsis by Hal Erickson
William "One Take" Beaudine warms the director's chair for Lippert Pictures' Tough Assignment. The film is essentially a combination western and contemporary crime yarn, with Don Barry cast as Dan Reilly, a frontier journalist. With the help of his wife Margie (Marjorie Steele), Dan tries to get the goods on a gang of clever cattle rustlers. The main villain is played by Steve Brodie, while his henchmen are played by Marc Lawrence and Ben Welden -- an intimidating lineup indeed. Comedy relief is supplied by Sid Melton, soon to become a "regular" in Lippert's low-budgeters of the 1950s.

In order to investigate a modern-day cattle rustling operation, a newspaper reporter and his girlfriend infiltrate the gang.
