Storyline

At the turn of the century, Denny O'Moore (Mickey Rooney (I)'), is enroute from his New York City home to Texas, to pay his brother, Patrick (Robert Stack), a surprise visit at the latter's silver mine across the Mexico border. Denny meets Texas Ranger Joe Waldner (Robert Preston), who suspects that Patrick is involved with the notorious Mexican bandit, El Tigre. Denny and Waldner are captured by El Tiger's henchmen, but escape. Denny appeals to Carmel Alvarado (Wanda Hendrix), Patrick's sweetheart, to try and talk Patrick into leaving El Tigre, and falls in love with her himself. The bandits, headed by the mysterious El Tigre, surround Denny, Waldner and Carmen in an old hacienda in Mexico. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

West with Mickey
9 December 2007 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Mickey Rooney (as J. Dennis "Denny" O'Moore) is out west, looking to find his brother Robert Stack (as Patrick O'Moore), whom he hasn't seen in eight years. Mr. Rooney meets up with Robert Preston (as Joe Walter), who is looking for the notorious outlaw known as "El Tigre". No prize for guessing how "El Tigre" is related to Rooney. Wanda Hendrix adds femininity to "My Outlaw Brother".

Tip your cowboy hat to Mickey Rooney, who is the film's greatest asset; and, he gets the larger women. Mr. Stack is penetrating as Rooney's unlikely brother. Mr. Preston makes a good partner; wisely, he is low key in the presence of Rooney. Just an interesting cast in a slight film.

**** My Outlaw Brother (8/22/51) Elliott Nugent ~ Mickey Rooney, Wanda Hendrix, Robert Preston, Robert Stack
