Underground Rustlers is a 1941 western movie directed by S. Roy Luby and starring Ray Corrigan, John 'Dusty' King, and Max Terhune. The movie follows a group of cowboys who are trying to uncover the identity of the leader of a gang of thieves who are stealing cattle from the local ranchers. The story begins with the three main characters, Tucson Smith (played by Corrigan), Stony Brooke (played by King), and Lullaby Joslin (played by Terhune), arriving in a small town to attend a rodeo. While they are there, they become aware of the thefts and decide to help catch the thieves.

The trio soon learns that the stolen cattle are being sold to a man named Pop Gardner, who operates a meat packing plant. They realize that the only way to catch the rustlers is to go undercover and infiltrate the gang. Tucson, Stony, and Lullaby split up and pretend to be drifters looking for work, eventually earning the trust of the rustlers' leader, who is known only as 'The Shadow'.

As the men spend more time with the gang, they begin to suspect that one of the ranchers who lost cattle might be involved. They decide to investigate further and discover that the rancher's son and foreman are working with the rustlers. Tucson, Stony, and Lullaby confront the rancher and his son, and with their help, they set a trap for The Shadow and his men.

The movie features several action-packed sequences, including chases and gunfights. It also includes some comedic moments, particularly those involving Terhune's character, Lullaby. The film is notable for its use of a trained monkey, who appears in several scenes with Terhune's character.

Overall, Underground Rustlers is a solid example of a B-western from the early 1940s. Its plot is simple and straightforward, but the pacing is good and the action is entertaining. The performances from Corrigan, King, and Terhune are solid, and the supporting cast is also strong. The movie's use of a trained monkey is a bit gimmicky, but it does add a unique element to the film.

While Underground Rustlers may not be a classic of the genre, it is still an enjoyable movie for fans of westerns or vintage cinema. Its themes of loyalty and betrayal, as well as its focus on cowboys tracking down thieves, make it a good example of the kind of stories that were popular during the era.

Underground Rustlers is a 1941 western with a runtime of 57 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2.
