Audience Reviews for Big Jack


150331: Not really a western by my standards, just a tad too early, but a great film nonetheless. Enjoyed watching Wallace Beery as Big Jack Horner. Had seen him in Barbary Coast Gent (1944) and loved him there as well. Neat actor who compliments the story line in this old black and white comedy. Going to have to seek out more of his films. Thumbs up on the whole production.
