This film is surprisingly good for such an early film. Entertaining in some parts.

8/10

I watched this film after finding out that a relative of mine was Ace (the owner of the Saloon.) Sure, some parts of it were not so great. Poorly done fighting scenes and rather bland and unoriginal lines. They really stuck to the stereotypical roles of characters in western movies. The money driven saloon owner with his girl and the miners that got used. Actually though, sometimes that isn't too far from the truth. I found other parts really well done. The film quality is great for being an early talkie. They did do some good film shots as well as added humor. The horse in it (this does not spoil the film) acts like something between a dog and a human. It makes the movie worthwhile by adding a touch of humor one usually doesn't see in westerns. Anyways, whats better than finding out you're related to the guy who played the bad guy?

Fair creaker.

This is one of Ken Maynards earliest talkies, and although it's stilted, it is fairly worth watching. Although there is no soundtrack, you get the feeling of a real western, which is something not a lot of other 'B' westerns can manage. As for the performances, Maynard turns in the only good one.
