Trivia

Using the name "Monte Black" as the villain was something of an in-joke at Warners, where Monte Blue was a star during the silent era. After sound came in, he was relegated to minor supporting roles at the studio, albeit in some very good films like Casablanca (1942) and Key Largo (1948). See more »

Quotes

Bob Leadly: I'm not sure, but I heard he was south - somewhere in Sonora, a bandit in the gang of Monte Black.
John Bishop: Monte Black?
Bob Leadly: Once a man joins that gang, he never comes out alive. It's known as the Brotherhood of Death.

The Middle Class John Wayne
17 May 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It's in these early films that you see how middle-class John Wayne really is before he assumed the immortal identity of the American cowboy. He was obviously socialised into high society through his university connections and has a healthy interest in women. Thanks to John Ford he was just churning out the B-pictures one after the other. However, as a self-contained project, the film looks quite stagy as though it was fresh from the theatre. The dialogue is stilted and clumsy, but then that's down to the writing. I don't think that screenwriters and directors got to grips with the new medium that is cinema at this point, making this offering painful to watch.
