'Neath the Arizona Skies is a not-so-bad early John Wayne western
If you've been reading my reviews under my username lately, you've probably guessed I've been reviewing the "Our Gang" series in chronological order for the last several weeks as well as many features featuring many of its members in between some of those shorts the same way. So it is that I'm now reviewing this B-movie starring John Wayne before real stardom reached him with Stagecoach in '39 in which he's the guardian of a half-breed girl played by Shirley Jean Rickert years after leaving that series I just named. She was blonde with curls there but has a dark straight wig here. Even at less than an hour, much of the dialogue is expository that gets boring after a while so it probably would have helped if a score had been performed during those scenes as well as during a pretty exciting shoot-out and chase at the end. Still, I'm glad to have watched this on the Internet Archive so on that note, 'Neath the Arizona Skies is at the least, worth a look for fans of The Duke and Our Gang.
