Storyline

'Firebrand' Jordan is a ranger sent into the high Sierras to assist the local Sheriff Ed Burns in capturing a mysterious band of counterfeiters. His coming is made known to the gang leader, who sends three of his henchmen to get the ranger and gets three empty horses back. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Judd Howe has disappeared, leaving his two daughters, Joan and Peggy, worried and in financial distress. The big-moneyed man of the district, David Hampton, lying that their father owes him money, attempts to make Joan accede to his less-than-honorable wishes.Jordan discovers that Hampton is really the gang leader he is hunting, succeeds in capturing the outlaws in an old mine, frees Howe who was being held prisoner, and wins the hand of Joan.

Early Talkie is a typical B Western
24 June 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I once owned what was probably the only existing print of this primitive sound Western. Very low budget and flimsy acting complete with a rowdy saloon scene and cheesy dancing chorus girls galore!

The plot concerns a counterfeit operation(rather unusual)and is set in the present(1930)with automobiles as well as horses. An over reliance on inter titles to set the scenes dates this fresh from the silent era.

My ancient brittle and shrunken nitrate film clanged nervously through my projector and after just one screening, I donated the highly flammable celluloid to the American Film Institute. Probably beyond restoration, but should you wish to see this flick from long ago, check the with the AFI, maybe they got around to transferring it to videotape. My print lacked the titles and credits and maybe a scene or two. About an hour in length, this is typical of many early low-budget sound movies.
