A Most Charming Villain
6 July 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Ken Maynard plays the title role of Whistlin' Dan who is riding to take down the outlaw who kidnapped his pal Don Terry and held him for ransom. In the year of the Lindbergh kidnapping Hollywood did lots of kidnapping stories including westerns of which this is one.

Georges Renevant who usually played silky smooth head waiters plays a head bandit in this one, a charming and deadly killer. He kidnaps Maynard's partner Don Terry when he hears Terry might have $5000.00 on him. But when Terry turns up empty, Renevant holds him for ransom and when its not paid in time, Renevent kills Terry.

Since Maynard robbed a bank to get the money for the ransom, he's wanted too along with sidekick Harlan Knight. Which turns out to be a lucky break since he falls in with one of Renevant's gang.

As Poverty Row B westerns, Whistlin' Dan is not a bad one. And Renevant steals the film with his most charming villain.
