A real Wallace Beery classic
27 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When watching this movie you have to remember the time frame it was filmed in. The humor displayed has been repeated through the years, but here it was cutting edge. The character portrayed by Beery was incredible. I only wish I could find a copy of this movie for my personal collection. OKeefe is the perfect foil for the rascally character played by Beery. You have to pay attention to what is happening all around the characters to appreciate the cold blooded humor this movie contains. If you get the chance, see it. If you get the chance tape it. The scene where the campfire is dying out and BEERY takes his new found son's blanket is a classic piece of work. You have to laugh out loud in this movie. I wish I could have caught it uncut on the big screen (at least as big as they were in the thirties)
