Ben Lyon and Marie Prevost
15 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now here's a goat gland film I might nominate as the worst of the bunch. This western started out as a silent in 1928 starring Ben Lyon and Marie Prevost. I don't think it was ever released as a silent, but it was released in July 1931 with a talkie prologue and song tacked on and some very badly done sound effects (dogs barking, stampede sounds, singing, etc.).

The film was financed by the Mormon people of Utah, although it's not clear that the settlers in the film are Mormons. They do seem to be following "the Mormon Trail." Anyway Lyon is the leader of the wagon train and he's caught in a love battle between the fiery Arleta (Prevost) who dresses as a gypsy for some reason, and the goody Sylvia (Gladys Johnston) who wears a hideous blonde wig. Arleta and her cohorts join the wagon train to rob its horses to sell to the Indians. Anders Randolf and Russell Simpson play the bad guys.

On the good side, Ben Lyon (always likable) is solid as the lead, and Prevost looks great and gets lots of closeups. The buffalo stampede is exciting and looks all too real. The film is also known as CALL OF THE ROCKIES and ALL FACES WEST.
