Plot
Paramount borrowed John Wayne from Republic Pictures for the studio's second screen version of Zane Grey 's Born to the West , which was also the Western's original release title. A couple of drifters, Dare Rudd ( Wayne ) and Dinkie Hooley ( Sid Saylor ), arrive in a Wyoming town hoping for a handout from Dare's rancher cousin, Tom Fillmore ( Johnny Mack Brown ). Dare takes but one look at Tom's girlfriend, Judy Worstall ( Marsha Hunt ), and decides to stay in town. He obtains the job of chuck wagon cook, but Judy, who is falling for the charming newcomer, convinces Tom to give Dare a job with more responsibilities. To get rid of a potential rival and to prove Dare's irresponsibility once and for all, Tom assigns his cousin the job of selling the herd. Unbeknownst to either Tom or Dare, however, saloon owner Bart Hammond ( Monte Blue ) also has his greedy eye on the herd and sets a trap for Dare. Hell Town used quite a bit of stock footage from the original silent version, Born to the West , which had starred Jack Holt . — Hans J. Wollstein
