A rare glimpse of the greatness of the silent western.
7 June 2000 | by (Midwest) – See all my reviews

A rare glimpse of the greatness of the silent western. This is one of the first filmings of the classic Zane Grey story and one of the best. A chance to see why Jack Holt was a major star of silent action movies. Noah Beery is at his most villanous. Beautiful shots of horses running wild through canyons and over rocks. If possible, this one shouldn't be missed.
