Pre-Production Code Shenanigans!
23 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Man From Hell's Edges" was a routine Bob Steele western for producer Trem Carr except for a couple of things. First there is a scene where Steele's two sidekicks, Shamrock (George "Gabby" Hayes) and Half Pint (Gilbert (Pee Wee) Holmes) skip-pity hop arm in arm down the middle of the street. As they are doing this a townsman makes eyes at the pair and waves feminine like to them. A scene like this with its homosexual overtones would never had made it past the censors one the industry Production Code was adopted in 1934.

The other thing that sets this one apart is the apparent stunt work of Yakima Canutt. Although I couldn't verify that it was Canutt's work, several of the stunts bear his mark. First there are several horsetails then a high dive off a cliff followed by a horse and rider doing likewise. It could have been stock footage but I'm sure that Canutt was involved.

The story has Flash Manning (Steele) escaping from prison trying to find the boss of his cell mates, whose identity he does not know. It seems that the gang had been responsible for a $100,000 robbery and the location of the money is known only to one of Steele's cell mates. To learn the identity of the leader, Manning (as Bob Williams) takes the job of sheriff and takes an interest in heroine Betty (Nancy Drexel). He also suspects local gunman Lobo as being the leader of the gang. Well, the rest of the gang is released from prison and they all meet up and.............

The production team on this series was also responsible for the John Wayne "Lone Star" series of 1933-35.
