THE FIGHTING TROOPER (1934, Ambassador) Kermit Maynard, Barbara Worth, Walter Miller, Robert Fraser, Charlie King.. Here it is, Kermit’s first starring film for Ambassador. It’s a good one, too. Kermit and his pal track a suspected killer and fur thief named La Farge. But is La Farge really the killer? Good acting compliments a well-written script. 16mm.
RED BLOOD OF COURAGE (1935, Ambassador) Kermit Maynard, Ann Sheridan, Reginald Barlow, Charlie King. Kermit rides into town looking for a missing pal. He becomes involved with a pretty young girl whose oil-rich land is coveted by the same culprits who murdered his pal. One extraordinary scene has Kermit escaping from a burning cabin, in which Kermit was nearly killed during the actual filming. This is undoubtedly one of Kermit’s best and we definitely recommend it. From 16mm.
GALLOPING DYNAMITE (1936, Ambassador) Kermit Maynard, Ariane Allen, John Merton, Dave Sharpe. One of Kermit’s outstanding westerns for Ambassador. Four cowboys discover gold on a cattle ranch. Three of them plot to swindle the rancher out of his gold. When the fourth one protests, he is shot dead by the others. Unknown to them, the slain man’s brother is a Texas Ranger with a very tough reputation. He rides into town to seek justice and avenge his brother’s death. From 16mm.
ROUGH RIDING RHYTHM (1937) Kermit Maynard, Beryl Wallace. It’s not often you saw hard violence against women in ‘30s westerns, but this solid Maynard film deals with the brutal murder of a young mother. The victim was bashed in the head by her no-good, cattle-rustling hubby. Kermit and her brother swear to bring him in, and they do by the end of the film. Very engaging. From 16mm.
