A wonderful 'tale of two worlds'!
27 August 2014 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Steve O'Dare, a real Westerner from Nevada, returns to New York to visit his old college pals - and of course, they proudly show him around their 'great' big city, the clubs, the avenues, the parks; but he considers all that 'greatness' effeminate and superficial, and for every example they give for the wonders of the city, he tells them a much better story about life back home in Nevada... And so we've got the rare pleasure to get both a glimpse of Old New York in pre-WWI times AND of the 'real' Old Wild West! But the best part of it all is the story: for Steve, who initially insisted that EVERYTHING'S better in the West, suddenly changes his mind when he sets eyes on a beautiful young city girl - which brings along QUITE some thrills for him even in the 'boring' East...

A PERFECT role for Dashing Doug, who plays the fearless romantic hero obsessed with his Western lifestyle (and in fact, he WAS a Westerner: he was born in Denver, Colorado, in 1883!), and yet also able to cope with East Coast crooks - FULLY packed with action and fun, this is certainly one of his BEST comedies of his early screen days before he went into 'swashbuckling'; and a GREAT opportunity for today's audience to discover what the US - both East and West - were like 100 years ago!
