A drunk (Uncle Henry in disguise) with a jug staggers into the shack where Molly is held captive. He goes over to the table, takes out the cork from the jug and takes a swig. He puts the jug down without putting the cork back in. He staggers a few steps away, then comes back for another drink and the cork has been replaced. See more »
This little known film was shown the other night thanks to TCM. It proved to be a delightful surprise. The film directed by Edwin Marin and based on a story by W.C. Tuttle, makes a well spent sixty-six minutes.
Best of all is Frank Morgan, who plays a man who suddenly learns about he has inherited his step-brother's ranch in Arizona after having failed in Manhattan. The film is fun because of the contrast the cattle farm presents for city slicker Henry Conroy.
The supporting cast is excellent. The charming Virginia Weidler plays Molly, who takes to Henry immediately, as she thinks she has found a father figure at last. Guy Kibee, Slim Summerville, Douglas Fowley and Owen Davis Jr., are seen in minor roles.
The film is a lot of fun thanks to Frank Morgan who is amazing in it.
