Critic Reviews for In Old Arizona
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.
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]
Famous for being the first major sound western, this picture made progressive use of exterior sound and photography.
Uneven film with brilliant comedy relief by Edmund Lowe, and lots to interest fans of Raoul Walsh.
Audience Reviews for In Old Arizona
Lost in the annals of history is this early film that doesn't stretch the use of film making. The westerns that followed easily make this one forgettable.
Charming performance by Baxter as the suave bandit The Cisco Kid. Lowe and Burgess overact in the way common to stage or silent movie actors making the transition to talkies (though this is Burgess's screen debut). The use of songs is natural as the characters whistle to themselves or sing to pass the time with a few friends. The western scenery and interior decorations make for great period detail. Some amusing moments and surprising seductiveness from Burgess make this an entertaining little picture.
