Did You Know?


This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecasts took place in Los Angeles Sunday 2 October 1949 on KNBH (Channel 4) and in New York City Sunday 26 February 1950 on the DuMont Television Network's WABD (Channel 5).

Slip Gerns: Gomez down on the border told me to look you up. Said he could use some more cattle. You got any?
Kent: No. There are no more cattle left around here.
Slip Gerns: Then maybe you could use a gunman. Here are my credentials.

Beware! Postmasters!
11 February 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Believe it or not, 'The Last Of The Warrens' is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen in a long while. After a soldier comes back from the War to his small western town, everyone is shocked to see him.. they all thought he was dead! He's incredibly puzzled by this though, because he wrote almost every chance he got. After tearfully reuniting with his Dad and his long-suffering girlfriend, we find out that it's the POSTMASTER who's got a vendetta against poor Ted Warren! (It's all a long simmering family feud you see). Soon, Bob has to save his girlfriend, avenge his father being injured by the postmaster AND try to stop the bank robbery that just happened in town! Good grief almighty! This is, as you can probably tell, a whole lot of fun. Bob Steele is great as Ted Warren, who just wants to return to a simple life, and Charles King plays a convincing (and nimble!) heavy. This seemed to have put some THOUGHT into it, which is nice for a B-Western such as this, as the story cracks with suspense (I was rubbing my hands at some points wondering what was going to happen), great fight sequences (the two go at it like they were genuinely angry at each other, and not some sissy fights which I keep seeing from other Westerns) and has a relationship I finally care about. WELL DONE!
