Lost Dutchman Mine indeed!
1 January 2001 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

I found this movie while searching for movies about the "Lost Dutchman Mine," but beware, there is no treasure hunt here, no gold, & really nothing to connect this film to the Lost Dutchman aside from a map scrawled on a shirt. As customary for westerns released around this time (the copyright is 1935), there's plenty of music, but this film takes its music a few steps further than most! There's an instrumental Mexican music & dance number. Then there's a song performed by "Professor Paul Blackman" (the screen name of the African-American who performs the song), who is a one-man band (& actually, this is the best song in the movie!). Finally, there's a light operatic number sung by a Jeanette MacDonald imitator. The hero of the movie, called "Don" or "The Irish Gringo," is actually an Irish guy who dresses as a Mexican & pretends to have a Mexican accent (played by Pat Carlyle, & be sure to catch him in that other 1930s screen classic, "Marijuana"). Poorly (but not miserably) acted, directed, scripted. Enjoyable in a campy way. I give it 4/10.
