Cheyenne Harry again comes along at the right time to meet adventure.
20 June 2003 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

Rugged Harry Carey, as Cheyenne Harry Morgan, a man whose cinematic past includes many brushes with the law, is ranging south in this Astor films production, when he comes across an old friend named McCall, played by veteran Western performer Earl Dwire, and when McCall is murdered, Cheyenne Harry is arrested and must clear himself of the crime. An assortment of character actors appear in this well scripted and directed product, each process the work of able Harry Fraser, including a trio of villains: Lee Shumway, Roger Williams and Chuck Morrison, acrobatic stuntman David Sharpe as a young deputy and, as a thug's moll in this contemporary Western, Jane Novak who was Carey's leading lady in a number of silent films. There is much to admire in this low budget "B", including the oft naturalistic dialogue penned by Fraser and generally well delivered by the cast, creative and humoursome cinematography by Robert Cline, and the four-footed skills of wandering Harry's most valuable property, the black-maned white steed Sonny. Carey was featured in 26 silent Cheyenne Harry adventures under the direction of John Ford, and this undertaking is the second to last of the long-running series which had continued after the coming of sound, with the gravelly-voiced actor consistently contributing a solid performance as a black hatted frontiersman who simply can not refuse to assist those in need.
