Bad Acting
3 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Jack Hoxie was one of the great cowboy stars of the silent screen, and deservedly so. This, his final starring role for Poverty Row Western Star Productions, shows very clearly why he could not make the transition: he can't speak a line of dialogue without it sounding like it's being read. Nor is the dialogue all that good.

The parts of this movie that do not depend on sound are pretty good: the composition is fine; the camera-work by William Noble is excellent; and Hoxie looks great in the shots done MOS, particularly when he is atop Dynamite the Wonder Horse. But conservative a genre as the western was, people still had to be able to speak believably, and the well-spoken lines are few and far between in this one.
