Reuniting With Dad
31 October 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Rex Bell is probably best known for being the one who finally married that wild child of the Twenties, Clara Bow and eventually making her the second lady of Nevada. Unfortunately if this is an example of his work as a western star, better he did go into politics.

Rex as the title indicates is a young kid from Idaho who became separated from his father as a child. He's come back to join him, but finds dad, played by Earl Dwire, is a ruthless cattle baron. Dwire's methods are none to Rex's liking and he joins forces with Dwire's rival, played by Lane Chandler.

Interesting how some of the most ancient of plot lines can be worked into unexpected situations. This was the problem that confronted Brad Pitt as Achilles in the recent Troy epic. He liked the Trojans who he was fighting far better than the Greek monarchs employing him. Of course things end better for Rex than for Brad.

A rather short lived poverty row outfit called Colony Pictures did this one. They lasted only about four years and their entire output was westerns with one film about the Shadow starring Rod LaRocque. The westerns either starred Bell or Ken Maynard.

The ending is quite unbelievable, I'm not sure why Rex just didn't tell Dwire he was his son right at the beginning.

I hope some of Rex's other films are better than this one.
