Two Full Length Western Films From The Silent Era!
Thundering Hoofs (1924, B&W, Silent with new musical soundtrack, 71 minutes): One of the few surviving films featuring silent star Fred Thomson! The border bandit Severn is after Estrada's money. He not only gets Estrada to promise his daughter to him in marriage but he also convinces him that Dave Marshall is the bandit. When Dave shows up to expose Severn, he is jailed.
The King of the Wild Horses (1924, B&W, Silent with new musical soundtrack, 59 minutes): Not your typical western, this film features Black - a powerful and cunning, wild stallion who is the leader of a heard. Horse rancher, John Fielding is the father of two grown children. A son, Boyd, who is not very bright, and a daughter, Mary, who cowboy Billy Blair is smitten with. Fielding's head ranch hand, Galvin, has been forcing the son to help him steal Fielding's horses.
For fans of movie Westerns, this double feature offers two of the earliest entries in the genre. THUNDERING HOOFS (1924), starring Fred Thomson, and THE KING OF THE WILD HORSES (1933), starring John Fielding, are two rarely seen silent wonders that have been without official releases until now.
