THE STOLEN RANCH is a solid little Western with the added twist of two war buddies (one with shell shock) working undercover to get back the ranch that the foreman has taken for his own (possibly believing the heir was killed in the war). It's just enough of a new spin to make this modern-day Western story work nicely.
Fred Humes is the likable star and pal to the shell-shocked heir (Ralph McCullough). He plays Breezy and the name is apt. He's especially good in the kitchen scenes with Mary Jane (Louise Lorraine), and there are a few very funny bits concerning potatoes. William Bailey plays the scheming usurper, and Nita Cavalier plays the blonde.
Janet Gaynor is often listed as an extra, but there were no scenes in the version I saw where she could possibly be, so it's either a mistake or her scenes were deleted.
