RIP ROARING EARLY TALKIE WESTERN
Western Movie Fans are Likely to Like this Rowdy Shoot em' Up from 1930.
It is a Big Production all around and there is Plenty of Gunplay and Wide Open Spaces, a Large and Scruffy Cast, and a Substantial Running Time.
Holding it Back from Greatness are some Stiff Dialog Scenes and a Meandering Script Peppered with Down Home Humor and an Awkward Love Story.
Dozens of Deaths by Gunpowder and there are a Few Striking Set Pieces, for Example...
Billy and the Gang are Hold Up and Surrounded in a Cabin.
Billy's Capture and Escape from the Lincoln County Jail.
A Starving Billy the Kid forced out of a Cave Dwelling into the Open by a Pan of Frying Bacon, among others.
Overall it is a Rip Roaring Western that Helped Johnny Mack Brown stay a Star.
It also didn't Hurt Wallace Berry's Career as He Plays a Rather Subdued Pat Garrett.
