Watched some of those a few years back, not this one though. Seen one - seen 'em all anyway. Nice to see the horse getting top bills.

Yeah, anytime I see one of those short Westerns from the 30's I am tempted to just change the channel. I always tell myself not to lump them together and assume they are all the same, but every time I do sit through one I regret it. (One reason at least subconsciously that I force myself to watch is that since these are generally unavailable on dvd, I figure that if I don't watch them when they play on TCM then I may eternally be missing a movie that maybe, just maybe is actually good. But they never turn out to be). Good thing is at least they are so short. And they have a sort of charm in how relatively unprofessionally they were done  Wink

It is interesting to watch movies from another era, but it is kinda weird to know that every person involved in the film, including child actors, are all gone  Cry

No, there's only one reason why one eventually watches this early schlocks: so you can get it off the list (and put it one the Western Index). Wink

I mean, there's no other possible reason, you can't even find someone to discuss them. Cheesy

1. only Groggy watches films just for the sake of checking 'em off the list
2. Indeed, I was not expecting to get a single reply to this (as has happened with many of the AW threads I have created). But I still feel it helps the board to have a thread for every Western, if possible. Just in case there are indeed a few nutjobs who wanna discuss it  Wink

There is a guy on Imdb "silentsfan" who watches these. They do have some interesting tidbits, I was watching an early John Wayne Western in one of those multiple box sets (Think it was among the Lone Star or Monogram Westerns) and it had a sequence of an undertaker measuring the corpses after a gun battle, now where have we seen that.... Cool
