early Talkie western with J Hoxie
2 December 2009 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Spoilers - This EARLY western is a short shortie, at only 53 minutes. GUN LAW comes as part of a two DVD set from, accompanied by Blue Steel, the "A" feature. The sound and picture quality are both pretty bad, and most of the scenes are quite dark, making it hard to follow. The picture opens with three cowboys reading a newspaper, where Tony's ma is looking for the where-abouts of her son. The only problem is, they are wanted now, and have their pictures on "wanted" posters. Jack Hoxie is "the Sonora Kid", who parts ways with Nevada Smith (Frank Glendon) and the rest of the old gang. Tony gets knocked off, so they head back to Tony's home, and the trouble begins. When the Sonora Kid pretends to be the dead man for his family's sake , Nevada shows up and blackmails him or he will spill the beans. The script and the acting are both pretty iffy, and I would suggest seeing one of the stronger remakes of this story. This film was made near the start of the talkies, and they DO get extra credit for the amount of outdoor filming they did. Hoxie had been making movies for 20 years by this time, and this was the second to last one that he made, according to wikipedia. Also note that "Dynamite the Wonder Horse" is even listed in the opening credits. This version from Echo Bridge is only 53 minutes long, and also includes a text biography of Jack Hoxie on the same DVD.
