The Broncho Buster (1927) -- Lost Silent ?
20 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Major John Furth ( William Malan ) , a southern aristocrat and the owner of Blue Bird, a prize racehorse, borrows money from treacherous Curtis Harris ( David Dunbar ), who desires Furth's daughter, Barbara ( Gloria Grey ), hoping to recoup the family fortune in an eastern derby. Jim Gray ( Charles Lee Quinn ), a crooked trainer recommended by Harris, reports that Blue Bird is a killer and must be shot, but he is stopped in the act by Charlie Smith ( Fred Humes ), a neighboring miner who loves Barbara. Charlie takes the horse to the mine he is working with his partner, Sourdough Jones ( George Buck Connors ). Two of Harris' men conspire with Sourdough to steal Charlie's claim, and Harris, threatening the colonel, forces Barbara to accept his marriage proposal. Charlie, however, stops the ceremony and exposes the villain. Sourdough clears the colonel's debts with Harris' own money, and the latter is evicted with a claim to a worthless mine.

This 1927 silent western was produced by Universal Pictures Corporation and sadly now remains a lost silent film.
