John Wayne fights Ward Bond --- And that;s just great!, 4 November 2006
Author: vitaleralphlouis from United States

Average quality but nonetheless interesting Jack London western in which John Wayne and Ward Bond have their first serious on-screen slug match. The story centers on a boxing match and on an orphan boy who Wayne unofficially adopts, the lad thus graduating from eating the tail of the chicken to the drumstick. I never forgot that aspect.

I ought not reveal more of the story, cuz there ain't much more; as the movie clocks in at 65 minutes. In the pre- TV and pre- VCR era the combination of having John Wayne as the star and the short running time made for an ideal half of a double feature and prolonged the movie's life through several re-issues over several decades.

Incredibly, this movie has sold repeatedly in bootleg copies on the internet for prices in excess of $100. Interesting to see the movie listed for $9.95 suddenly bid up above $100, sometimes over $150. (I was never a seller.) This happened more than 20 times.
