Sam Clayton has a good heart and likes to help out people in need. In fact, he likes to help them out so much that he often finds himself broke and unable to help his own family buy the things they need--like a house.
A Great Action Western That Reflects All the Excitementt of Zane Grey's Novel!
A spectacular western with an interesting, many-stranded plot, which abundantly confirms Seitz's reputation in the 1920s as a first-class action director. And this is not to say that he misses out on other aspects. The acting is uniformly excellent, with Beery in his element as the villain and Jack Holt a revelation as the conscientious hero. Also presenting plenty of welcome charisma is the beautiful Billie Dove as the troubled heroine, while George Magrill enjoys one of his best roles ever as the two-faced schemer.
Equally outstanding behind-the-camera credits include Bert Glennon's superlative cinematography that has captured the most exciting images of wild horses thundering through inhospitable locations. Thrilling vistas like this are never likely to be seen again.
