Buffalo hunters fighting among themselves and with Indians.
9 March 2003 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film is what they used to call a quickie (62 minutes), but it is quite above average in part because of Henry Hathaway´s direction. The story, written by Zane Grey, is about buffalo hunting. Harry Carey is the good guy who runs a hunting outfit and works together with Randolph Scott. Noah Beery is the bad guy who also runs an outfit, he sends his men to steal buffalo hides from other hunters, disguised as Indians. Scott is in love with Beery´s stepdaughter, who is hated by Beery´s wife (she is quite a villain).These hunters kill thousands of buffalo just for the hide, so the Indians get revolted and decide to attack. Stock footage was used from the silent version made in 1925, but it blends very well with the rest of the film.
