We're No Cajuns
14 January 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A trio of ex-convicts (Robert Young, Nat Pendleton, Ted Healey) come to Louisiana bayou village intending to rip off the family of a dead inmate. But they find he exaggerated about his family's wealth. While there, Young falls for a pretty Cajun girl (Jean Parker). Before long the three are helping this family fight off a gang of Chinese criminals, led by C. Henry Gordon.

Young is pretty good in an atypical role. Pendleton and Healey play to their strengths very well. Famed cinematographer Gregg Toland worked on this, though I wouldn't have guessed it. Meandering story that has some good points. Likable characters and pleasant tone helps.
