Quotes

John Wyatt: [addressing potential recruits] And the answer, men is: we must band together. You, Carter; you, Russell; and every man here that's suffered from the injustice of these gangs. And it's up to us to clean them out. Now my plan is this: every man here will ride a white horse, wear a black shirt and a white scarf. And this way we'll know each other in battle. I'm asking for single men only. Men who'll stick. Who'll join me here?

bad screenplay, pretentious settings and arrangements
9 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

first, we got people singing a song like watching a play on a stage. then the funny things showed up one by one. by watching this 1935 film i was unable not to think about what the hongkong shaw brothers did to their Chinese kung-fu movies, always with stupid screenplays, weird attires, costumes, hairdos, make-up, terrible acting... pretentious and unrealistic dialog.....all of those horrible arrangements shown in shaw brothers kung fu movies were accidentally matched this pathetic western genre b movie. all the people in this pioneering westward movie wore nice, clean and ironed costumes, even in gunfights, good guys led by john wayne were riding on white horses, wearing white shirts, while the bad guys' horses were just a mixture of different colors. there were so many laughable and pretentious scenes and dialog in this horrible film.
