The first major Western in sound...One can occasionally feel the filmmakers showing off the technology, with close-ups of a crying baby or sizzling ham and eggs. [Blu-ray]
| Original Score: 2.5/4
[A] distinctly enjoyable offering.
| Original Score: 4/5
It's the first outdoor talker and a western, with a climax twist to make the story stand out from the usual hill and dale thesis.
Famous for being the first major sound western, this picture made progressive use of exterior sound and photography.
| Original Score: 3/4
Uneven film with brilliant comedy relief by Edmund Lowe, and lots to interest fans of Raoul Walsh.
Warner Baxter, better known as the dying producer in 42nd Street, won Best Actor Oscar as the Cisco Kid in this primitivee Western, most of which takes place indoorse.
| Original Score: C
Walsh presents the action in his usual clear, well-paced and exciting manner.
If it appears that I'm being too hard on this film, one doesn't have to look very far to see far superior films, both sound and silent, released around the same time.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
