Description by OLDIES.com:
A college football star who left a career as a professional athlete for Hollywood, Johnny Mack Brown found work as a leading man opposite starlets such as Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford. His portrayal of Billy the Kid in the 1930 King Vidor western of the same name marked a change in direction for Brown, who would continue on for two decades as a successful cowboy star.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 113 ratings.
Tremendous old time action serial. Universal used a lot of silent stock footage. It is well integrated into the story and gives this one real scope and excitement. There are three mass Indian attacks--on a wagon train, a town, and a fort--a tornado, a buffalo stampede, and a torrential downpour and flood, all on a large scale. John Mack Brown was at his peak as a western hero and had it all, looks, charisma, personality, and athleticism. Eleanor Hansen was an attractive heroine. Chief Thundercloud as a friendly Indian and Jack Rutherford as Buffalo Bill join in the heroics. Charles Middleton as the sly gambler, Ace Daggart, Charles King as his henchmen, and Charles Stevens as the tricky "Breed" provide the villiany. And let's not forget Johnny's dog Sudden who saves the day a number of times, nor the puma who puts in a striking guest villian cameo. A lot of fun.
