love triangle AND bad guys
27 August 2001 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

I ordered this film because I am a big fan of George O'Brien. I loved his silent films, especially "Sunrise" with Janet Gaynor. After silents, he became a western star. Not alot of his western films are available.

The story is about a man named Larry who is a drifter. He is traveling by train and at a stop goes to a Rodeo. He sees these guys riding a wild horse and he wants to see if he can do it. Well he falls off and to top it all off, misses his train. So he decides to stay behind and work on ranch.

Life on the old ranch is never boring. Case in point, Phil(the forehand) and Kitty(the rancher's daughter) were madly in love, that is until she got back from college. Now she is unsure. Enters new meat Larry who has also been to college. Kitty likes his looks and style. Phil doesn't like this one bit. Add to this Kitty's father is about to lose his ranch to the neighbouring cad. He has control of all the water in those parts and doesn't plan to share it with anyone. Cattle are dying and Kitty's father's money is going down the drain. Should he sell or hold out for hope. Hope comes in the way of a man named Larry.

Loved this movie. Just like the movies I saw on Saturday afternoon at the theatre when I was a young boy. Who could resist the charms of George O'Brien. What a man!!
