BORDER ROMANCE (1930, Tiffany) Don Terry, Armida, Victor Potel. Terry has a herd of horses stolen. Later, he becomes a fugitive after shooting a thug in a bar brawl. Then he meets up with a Spanish beauty (played by the vibrantly cute Armida) and carries on a whirlwind romance as he ducks the federalis and rounds up the rustlers at the same time. There are some snappy songs. Watch for the spunky dance number in a rowdy saloon. Terry and Armida make a charming western couple. There’s even footage of a brutal horse fight. Recommended. From 16mm.

LAW OF THE LASH (1947, Pathe) Lash LaRue, Al St. John, Mary Scott, Charlie King. Lash’s first series western. He and his whip come to town to rid the community of a murderous gang of cut-throats. A likable film that offers some psychological twists not normally found in B westerns. From 16mm.
