Suicide and maybe some early near nudity but still fun
1 August 2009 | by (Central Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie has cars and horses and nightclubs and pool table saloons. Machine guns and cows and big city mobsters who have a beef with the beef ranchers. High steaks, but the only T bone you will see is a trombone just before the lights go out. Really you have to see it. This movie has phone booth violence and wide open spaces chases and gunfights in the Rockies. It actually has a drive by shooting. I won't give away any of the plot but I will tell you Clara Bow had excellent taste. Young Rex Bell here, still in his twenties, does a strip scene which probably got everyone in the theater to buy another ticket to watch again to see if what they saw was for real. At about 17 minutes into the movie watch for Rex to be stripped by a bunch of cowboys. All in good fun, of course. These are manly men who just want to take the young guy's clothes off. Then go watch some football. Not only do they strip him down to his white boxers, but apparently this was before they had learned how to sew the opening of those boxers ( or maybe loose briefs ) closed. No tape was used to conceal anything. Nothing major is showing except maybe that opening might be more clear in the first editions of this movie. I watched a fuzzy image... fuzzy might be the key word. This movie is actually good enough for most people who are able to accept black and white. I think Rex Bell could be a star today if he looked like this and acted like this. He is very charming. When I first moved to Nevada in the early 1960s Rex was the Leutenant Governor and he was very much liked by Nevadans. I recommend this and be sure to watch any Clara Bow movie to see Rex's wife Clara. Look up their story. They had amazing careers plus wild private lives. There is one suicide in this movie and it was realistic for its time.
