A Cast of Salmon
31 May 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

In Alaska, handsome fisherman Joel McCrea (as Boyd Emerson) finds a place to stay with gun-wielding saloon girl Evelyn Brent (as Cherry Malotte). She falls in love with him, but he seems more interested in business, where she begins to help. A lot. "The Silver Horde" refers a big netting of silvery salmon. Thousands of them. This story is very rough going, with only a film buff's cast to keep you interested. A memorable future co-star for Mr. McCrea, young Jean Arthur (as Mildred Wayland) plays the home girl...

Former "silent" film star Blanche Sweet (as Queenie) appears in the second half. This was the last feature for Ms. Sweet, until a 1950s comeback attempt; perhaps surprisingly, she looks and sounds fine. McCrea's nemesis is well-played by Gavin Gordon (as Frederick Marsh), who had just made "Romance" (1930) with Greta Garbo. You can also enjoy a couple of the era's more appreciated character actors, Louis Wolheim (as George Balt) and Raymond Hatton (as Fraser), mugging it up as a comic relief team.

**** The Silver Horde (10/25/30) George Archainbaud ~ Joel McCrea, Evelyn Brent, Gavin Gordon, Blanche Sweet
