Storyline

Caught by the Piutes, pony Express Rider Dick Carter falls in love with pretty Dorothy Earle, who belongs to that seemingly endless supply of white girls kidnapped in childhood and raised by Indians. Unfortunately, Dorothy is promised to Bud Osborne, described in a title as "a renegade white who dominates the simple minds of the savage horde." Does Dorothy succeed in taking her own life rather than face an uncertain future with evil Bud? Or does the stalwart Dick rescue her in time? Written by Hans J. Wollstein

Dick Carter and the Pony Express
15 December 2004 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Who, you may be asking yourself, is Dick Carter? Truth be told, no one really knows but he may in fact be one William Mix, the producer of this little silent western. But who, pray tell, is William Mix? "Pioneers of the West" was directed by Marcel Perez, a Frenchman and a former slapstick comedy star, and penned by Mrs. Perez, one Dorothy Earle. It is not bad as far as low-budget silent westerns go, and although neither Mr. Carter nor Miss Earle seems to have possessed much in the way of acting ability, they are rescued at the finishing line by that big-nosed prairie femme fatale Gene Crosby and the ever-popular Bud Osborne. The surviving print is not very good, needless to say, but, then again, "Pioneers of the West," which appears to have been made in the very early 1920s rather than the official release date of 1927, probably wasn't all that great to begin with.
