Somewhat short on plot, but a lively Poverty Row western nonetheless!
In addition to the "Feature Films" listed in Kodascope catalogs, were two or three pages of "Westerns". Many of these of course were 2-reelers. But there were some features among them, including movies like "Ace of Cactus Range" (1924), starring lanky, square-jawed Art Mix, in which a rather sparse story about determined but not over-bright diamond smugglers is enlivened by lots of lively on-location lensing. Heroine Virginia Warwick is a nice-looking girl, but the heavies led by Cliff Davidson (in his first of three films), Harvey Stafford (his only movie) and Dorothy Chase (her only movie) seem to have been selected at random from Central Casting. The 55-minute Grapevine print under review has suffered around 15 minutes of severe deterioration.
