The Mexican Army to the Rescue!
24 November 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An excellent silent western starring the now unfortunately forgotten J.B. Warner. Told with good humor and interesting camerawork, we have Mr. Warner in love with a lovely Spanish senorita, his life saved by a jumping bean, then leading the Mexican army to rescue a woman from the Ku Klux Klan.

Surviving prints are a bit dupy after eighty years, but it's still a pleasant effort and well worth your time.
