Voici William Farnum
26 June 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

French-accented William Farnum (as Drifter) trudges from the snowy mountains of Canada, to his valley hometown. Along the way, he partners up with old Charles Sellon (as Whitey), who has just finished a 20-year prison stay. In town, the men meet their stated objectives: to find work and women. Mr. Farnum and his pal get a jobs with the Canadian Lumber Company, run by Noah Berry (as John McNary), after Farnum rids the town of ruthless Russell Hopton (as Montana). Mr. Berry's pretty blonde daughter Phyllis Barrington (as Bonnie McNary) catches Farnum's eye, but she is seeing business rival Bruce Warren (as Paul LaTour).

Farnum, a huge silent film star beginning with "The Spoilers" (1914), uses techniques from that medium, and stage experience; he's interesting, at least, in this unsuccessful picture. "The Drifter" suffers from some distracting technical flaws, also. Of the supporting cast, Mr. Sellon outperforms the reliable brother of Wallace Berry. Mr. Hopton is good, also; in one of the film's better scenes, Farnum shoots him at Church.
