Description by

Pardon My Gun (1930, B&W): Ranch owner "Pa" Martin has a beautiful daughter named Mary, and her suitors include amiable ranch hand Ted Duncan and greedy schemer Burt Cooper, a neighboring land-owner. Cooper's eye is far more focused on Martin's land than Mary's hand, and he challenges Martin to an "all-or-nothing" wager on a crooked horse race. Ted is slated to ride for Martin, but he's kidnapped by Cooper's henchmen. With her father's ranch on the line, Mary begins a desperate search for the man she loves.

Filled with singing cowboys and side-splitting corral comedy, early talkie Pardon My Gun features young Tom Keene, performing under the name of George Duryea. It also provides great showcases for Abe Lyman and his band, rodeo funnymen Tom and Hank MacFarlane, plus zany comedienne Mona Ray.

Starring Tom Keene, Sally Starr, Mona Ray, Harry Woods, Lee Moran; Directed by Robert De Lacey.

Half Pint Polly (1930, B&W): Pardon My Gun was actually a remake of a western short, Half Pint Polly, which was filmed six months earlier with most of the same personnel. Tom Keene's role in the short was played by silent screen cowboy star Tom Tyler in what may be his first talkie. Starring Tom Tyler, Mona Ray; Directed by Robert De Lacey.

MacFarlane Kids Are the Best!! Movie Lover: from BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AU -- March, 3, 2014

"Pardon My Gun" was a longer version of an
earlier western short "Half Pint Polly". Both
starred Mona Ray who was a comedienne in
the Winnie Lightner mold. She plays peppy
Peggy who is home from school, just in time
for the big horse relay race which is pretty
exciting. The main feature of this movie
is the barn dance, featuring Abe Lyman and
his band, who had a big following in the late
1920s. There are various acts including Al
"Rubberlegs" Norman who does his eccentric
elastic dance to "Millenburg Joys", Mona Ray
also proves she can sing as well as provide
comic relief.
Best thing about the film are the MacFarlane
Brothers, two kids who show off some pretty
fancy riding and rope tricks.
