Movie Info

In this very good sequel to "The Paleface," which stands perfectly well alone, Hope plays Junior, the son of his character in the preceding film. An Eastern dude who arrives in the west driving a horseless carriage in goggles and carcoat with a crimson H for Harvard on his chest, Junior seeks the inheritance left behind by his father, reputedly a western legend. Russell leads a gang of outlaws who steal gold shipments and escape capture by virtue of a covered bridge with a secret ramp that leads underneath it. Rogers plays a government agent tracking Russell, undercover as a singing cowboy (hardly a stretch, but it fits the story seamlessly) traveling with a doc and his medicine wagon. Russell is drawn to Junior's inheritance, and Rogers lies in wait for her to strike. However, as in the first film, the plot merely supports the slapstick, one-liners, unabashed anachronisms, and satire of western films. As funny as its predecessor, it ends with a final chase scene involving a horseless carriage, banana peels, stunts by Rogers, and a hostile tribe. "Buttons and Bows," the Oscar-winning Best Song from "The Paleface", is reprised here.
