Hot Ride for Harry Carey
23 December 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Fighting in 1918 France during World War I, train engineer Harry Carey (as William "Big Bill" Benson) agrees to adopt young Frankie Darro (as "Little Bill" Benson) from his dying mother. After the fighting, Mr. Carey returns to his US railway profession. Almost immediately, a train wreck occurs, due to a mishap involving young Darro. As a result, Carey is demoted. He has more trouble working his way back to the top due to the distracting antics of his cute son, but Carey won't give up Darro...

A favorite with rough railroad workers, kind and pretty waitress Edith Roberts (as Nora Burke) takes a liking to Carey and Darro. Handsome and sneaky Wallace MacDonald (as Malcolm Gregory) causes problems for the potentially happy family. When tragedy strikes, Carey must make a do or die deal to save Darro. When it appears everything has ridden off the rails, Carey engineers a fiery climax. Directed by actor Tom Forman and edited briskly, "Roaring Rails" is an above average railroad melodrama.

****** Roaring Rails (9/21/24) Tom Forman ~ Harry Carey, Frankie Darro, Edith Roberts, Wallace MacDonald
