From Australia with Love
7 May 2009 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

At his Australia sheep station, rancher Rod La Rocque (as Amos Burden) receives an invitation to visit his wealthy uncle, on the French Riviera. There, Mr. La Rocque learns the ways of the world, and falls in love with Russian Princess Jetta Goudal (as Nadia Ramiroff). Unfortunately, the lovers are interrupted by the arrival of well-mannered villain Noah Beery (as Ramón Garcia). Mr. Berry is also aroused by Ms. Goudal, and eventually steals her away, to his castle's dungeon… "The Coming of Amos" is a comedy adventure which goes all over the map, without much cohesion (apart for the boomerang). The castle set ending is nicely produced, though.

***** The Coming of Amos (9/6/25) Paul Sloane ~ Rod La Rocque, Jetta Goudal, Noah Beery
