The Movie's Okay, But Harry Carey's Better.
10 April 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

A couple of old men with a rich silver mine and $10,000 in cash become the target for gangsters who want to take it all. Harry Carey, an old acquaintance of one of the men, witnesses an attempted murder and prevents the the theft of the money, only to be hauled off to jail in a case of mistaken identity.

A late entry in the Cheyenne Harry series, started out by a young John Ford at Universal and finished by poverty-row filmmakers, this is generally lackluster, but made palatable by the presence of Carey.

Still, it's not totally bad, though there's too many automobiles. It takes away from the western feel.

Harry Carey was so charismatic and delivered such great performances, that it makes just about anything he's in worth watching, despite the fact that by this time he was much older than the typical Saturday matinée star
