Description by OLDIES.com:
Some of the Old West lives on in a tiny 1932 California town... until machine gun-toting gangsters take refuge there. Future Hopalong Cassidy hero Bill Boyd stars in Men of America
as a rancher who defends tiny Paradise Valley against those machine-gunning killers. Vaudeville's Charles "Chic" Sale, playing the kind of vinegary old-timer that wash is specialty, portrays the aging ex-Pony Express rider named Smokey Joe.
In Roar of the Dragon, Richard Dix stars as a booze-swigging riverboat captain who takes on the burden of commanding Westerners holed up in a Manchurian hotel that's surrounded by a horde of murderous Tartar bandits. The able cast includes Edward Everett Horton, playing against type in heroic sequences far removed from his familiar light comedies.
