George Shows Off His Sporting Prowess!!!
27 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Yet another novelty Western from the mid 1930s, this time with George O'Brien on location in merry England. Bob Walker (O'Brien) is employed as a "stage coach robber" - an entertainment designed to introduce visitors to the real West. He and his pal, "Persimmon", (Arthur Kennedy) are only waiting to save enough money so they can start up their gold mine.

The movie descends to a battle of the sexes with Bob trying to woo snooty English girl Doris (played by a very snooty Evalyn Bostock who didn't make much of a splash in the movies) with displays of riding, tennis and swimming. But Doris is wealthy and one person who is not happy about things is Thornton, her other admirer. He is the "most wanted con man in the world" and is busy cooking up a scheme by offering the boys $20,000 for their gold mine when in reality it is worth millions. When the guests leave - Doris has learned about Bob's $20 bet (to do with whether he can ask her out before she leaves), Thornton is hoping to marry Doris but he hasn't reckoned with Bob who follows them half way across the world.

The most interesting part of the movie is the last 10 minutes when Bob, like a fish out of water and complete with cowboy hat, wanders around London trying to find Persimmon before he signs the mine away. Oddly enough it is in London that he finds the most fighting action.
