Tumbleweed Trail is a 1942 Western directed by Sam Newfield. The film follows three frontier marshals, Bill 'Cowboy Rambler' Boyd (as self), Art Davis (as self), and Lee Powell (as self), as they chase notorious outlaw Vic Landreau (Charles King). The marshals eventually find Landreau hiding out in a remote small town. However, the town is corrupt and run by the owner of the saloon, Mort Slade (Jack Rockwell). The sheriff (Frank Hagney) of the town is one of Slade's stooges, as is Landreau. The three marshals ask the sheriff to turn Landreau over, but the sheriff refuses and even throws Boyd into jail. Part of the Frontier Marshal series from Republic Pictures, Tumbleweed Trail features Bill Boyd and Art Davis, who were both known at the time as successful recording artists. Lee Powell, the third frontier marshal, is also known for being the masked man of the plains in Republic's The Lone Ranger.
