Claim Jumping
11 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Opera trained George Houston stars in Wallaby Jim Of The Islands which when you come right down to it is a western set in the South Seas. Claim Jumping is claim jumping anywhere on the globe.

The folks doing the claim jumping are led by Wilhelm Von Brincken and what they're taking away from Houston is a claim to a rich bed of pearls. And they're aided and abetted by Douglas Walton who played a variety of weak individuals of the English persuasion, his best known role being Lord Darnley in Mary Of Scotland.

Getting his claim filed will be a chore for Houston especially since he's got Walton's betrayal and he's caught between Ruth Coleman and sexy native Mamo. You'll remember her from Mutiny On The Bounty.

Houston's numbers were truly superfluous, undistinguished and generally out of place. Turning out product like this no wonder Grand National Pictures folded.
