Lot of fun with ol' pro Ken Maynard and a young Ruth Roman
17 April 2015 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

Ken Maynard even does rope tricks in a story that had been used earlier by John Wayne in "Paradise Canyon."

Wayne's character was also a sharp shooter, as is Maynard's, but the Duke didn't do rope tricks.

Nor in the Duke's version was there an Eddie Dean to sing, nor Max Terhune with his puppet (sometimes referred to as ventriloquist's dummy) Elmer.

Never mind: It's a good enough plot device to get the story moving, and different enough in the two movies not to matter the least little bit.

Even more surprising than Maynard's doing rope tricks -- a surprise to this viewer who obviously needs to learn more about Ken Maynard movies - - was a very young Ruth Roman's appearing in a B western. She even does a little dance!

Many a budding star, such as Rita Hayworth and Jennifer Jones (using different names), began in B westerns, but it was a surprise to me, again, to see Miss Roman. She would be acting 45 more years after this.

Some of the classic western performers are in "Harmony Trail," including Glenn Strange and Charles King, along with Bud Osborne and John Cason.

Nothing new, perhaps, but the very good cast is well directed in a good story. I recommend "Harmony Trail."
