Pretty Durned Good, 26 December 2005
Author: boblipton from New York City

This is an excellent early sound serial, with an wonderful cast -- including the always hissable Noah Beery Sr. as the villain, the now too frequently forgotten Tully Marshall and, of course, Johnny Mack Brown in the lead. The crew is also topnotch, including Demille cinematographer Alvin Wyckoff and some great stuntwork by Yakima Canutt, including the famous falling-under-the-stagecoach gag. Oh, and the story is pretty good, too. And that's just the first chapter of this twelve-episode serial! To top it off, Sinister Cinema, which has just transferred this to DVD -- look them up online -- has managed to find an almost perfect print, and the beautiful camera-work is, as always, a revelation --all too often black and white movies are preserved in muddy prints, transferred to safety stock in an offhanded fashion. Not this one! If you enjoy western serials, hunt this one out. If you've never seen one, this is a fine introduction.
