A Good Family Western Drama
31 March 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

This film is not your action-packed, gun-slinging, shoot 'em up western film. This is a western film that is more realistic than the action westerns - we have the trials and tribulations of a family in desperate need of financial help. They are about to loose everything. One daughter is desperate to leave home while the other comes back home - she had told them she was a school teacher but reveals the truth of how she made her money. There 2 bank robbers that end up at the Stageline Station and an aging sheriff that has to arrest them.

Lon Chaney plays the father Henry Parker quite believably well. Anne Seymour plays his wife Myra Parker. The two of them really do sound like your average married couple bickering. Some of the best scenes are between the two of them. I also like their relationship with their two daughters. The look and act like a real family in hard times.

It's a "quiet" film... not a lot of action but a lot of drama. Slow paced, easy to follow.

8/10
