BETWEEN MEN (1935, Supreme) Johnny Mack Brown, William Farnum, Earl Dwire, Beth Marion. A great western! During a fight, a young boy is shot down by thugs. His enraged father tracks down and kills the ruffians, then flees before he is arrested. Little does he know that his son was only wounded and is still alive. Years later, the boy--now a man--sets out to uncover what happened to his dad. Beth Marion is stunning, a true B western beauty. From a great 16mm print.
THE CROOKED TRAIL (1936, Supreme) Johnny Mack Brown, Lucile Browne, John Merton, Ted Adams. Johnny rescues a known thug in the desert and gives him a new chance at life, making him his prospecting partner. Trouble follows as his new “partner” tries to do him in and steal his wife. Most fist fights in early B westerns were pretty lame, but when Johnny catches up with Merton, he beats the hell out of him in five of the hardest punches ever thrown in a B western!
THE GAMBLING TERROR (1937, Republic) Johnny Mack Brown, Iris Meredith, Earl Dwire, Charlie King. A fine B western. Johnny plays a seemingly nonchalant cowboy who enters a battles of wits (and guns) with a local mobster-type bad guy who's been extorting protection money from many of the local settlers. A much-recommended six-gun actioneer.
LAW MEN (1944, Monogram) Johnny Mack Brown, Raymond Hatton, Kirby Grant, Robert Frazer. A marshal tries to track down a gang of bank robbers. After infiltrating the gang, he comes to learn that the owner of the bank is the head the crooked conspiracy. A well-made Monogram western. 16mm.
