Adequate.
15 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When I found this film, I had no idea what a 'greaser' was. In the 1950s it was a term for young men with greased back hair. So, I looked it up and found that it was a highly offensive term for Mexicans--one that was apparently used when the film was made. Of course, when you see one of the characters is termed 'the half-breed' (it turns out this is also 'the greaser') you figure it ain't exactly a politically correct film!

This Broncho Billy movie has a very, very simple plot--which makes sense when the film is only about 17 minutes (which is, believe it or not, very long for 1914). The 'Greaser' is an obnoxious guy and loves bullying people. However, when he does this to a sweet lady in the general store, Billy stands up to him. Plotting his revenge, the 'Greaser' attacks Billy when he's asleep. Fortunately, our do-gooder has just rescued a man he found dying by the trail and this guy jumps in to help Billy escape the evil villain's clutches. Then, the decent townsfolk arrive to punish the wily evil-doer. Huzzah!

This film is just adequate and absolutely nothing more. It also reinforces the notion that Mexicans are not to be trusted! Nice message, huh?!
