Trouble Busters ★★½

Silent western star Jack Hoxie stars in an early sound western. Hoxie is cowboy Tex Blaine who's dispute with a cantankerous old store keeper ends up introducing him to the old guy's daughter, who he falls for hard. She does not share his feelings, but he follows her to another town, hooking up with two drunken trouble makers and getting involved in a dispute over land that has oil under it. This is a meandering, but entertaining and very very short western comedy/action flick. Hoxie has been a big name in silent films, but he did not transition well to sound since, among other things, he was barely literate. This was his last film. He started up a western themed circus.
