Trivia

Photo 2 on "The Fighting Cowboy" (1933) page is from "Rawhide Romance" (1934). Among others it shows Jay Wilsey, Genee Boutell, Lafe McKee, William Barrymore and Ken Broeker. A correction attempt had been made or, to be accurate, tried to correct it but failed. All the names mentioned above are in both films...with the EXCEPTION of Lafe McKee...who is shown laying on a cot but he IS NOT in "The Fighting Cowboy(1933). But he IS IN "Rawhide Romance".

Routine western enlivened by female lead
26 February 2011 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This is a routine B western in every way but one and that is the female lead.The story is very familiar,ruthless businessman trying to take over a gold mine by fair means or foul.However i have to say that the film is constantly enlivened by the female lead,who it appears only made 5 film appearances and died aged 92 in 2006.She is a pretty girl but not to put to fine a point on it she is not wearing underwear.So that whenever she is on a horse or running there is a lot of her in motion.Maybe she ,as a blonde decided to follow the example of Jean Harlow.This film has all the usual ingredients of B westerns and i am sure that it is of interest only to enthusiasts of this particular genre.
