Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

One of the Best "B" Westerns Ever Made!
17 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Fred Cavens, the man who taught Flynn, Rathbone, Power and company how to swash, has a major role in this Bob Steele entry. Needless to say the climax — or rather one of the climaxes — features a sword duel between villain Cavens and our plucky hero, Steele. Despite a bit of obvious camera speeding, this is a thrill-a-second encounter. With no doubles! In fact, "Breed of the Border" turns out as one of the most action-crammed westerns ever made. And all the actors perform their own stunts including little Ernie Adams whom at one stage Bob tosses right over his head to the floor. The editor has a grand time cross-cutting all the action including the hair-raising final car chase.

All the players are great. We love the spunky heroine, Marion Byron, (though her song seems to be dubbed), and George Hayes doing a variant of "Gabby", while Henry Roquemore similarly impresses as a caddish heavy.

Robert North Bradbury's smooth direction makes the most of all the big-budget sets and locations.
