Hackel contracted Bob Steele for 32 of his westerns,[2] for example Alias John Law in 1935. Hackel also produced 16 Westerns with Johnny Mack Brown.

In 1936 Republic Pictures needed more westerns and made a deal with Hackel, who released his films through Republic.[3] After the demise of Supreme Pictures in 1942, Hackel released through Monogram Pictures. All of his pictures were westerns until Am I Guilty? (1940), a race film. He followed it with numerous crime dramas including The Flaming Urge (1953), a crime film.
