Movie Info

In the Old West's Tiny Town, Bat Haines ("Little Billy" Rhodes) pits two ranching families, the Lawsons and the Prestons, against each other by stealing their cattle and blaming the other family for the thefts. Haines blackmails the sheriff, who is an ex-convict, into taking no action, then attacks a stagecoach carrying Nancy (Yvonne Moray), the niece of Tex Preston. Nancy is rescued by Buck Lawson (Billy Curtis), and the two fall in love. Billy then battles Haines to stop the feud.

    This sort of came out of the blue for me. My girlfriend and I watched it from a DVD set that has nineteen other movies on it, and so far this is the best of the lot... which isn't saying much. The Terror of Tiny Town tells a very generic western story of the bad guy coming to town, taking over and trying to frame the good guy. There's the generic love interest, the generic old man, the generic... well, generic everything. The only thing not generic is that everyone is four feet tall or less, including a young Andy Rooney. This is tough to sit through, and also a bit disturbing at times, but if you're looking for something that's different and worthy of a nightmare, then you'll enjoy The Terror of Tiny Town. It's not really good, but it will hold your attention for the most part because you'll just be amazed that someone took this seriously and actually made it.

    The year 1938 saw the premiere of a light hearted screwball comedy that failed in its initial release, but has grown in cinematic stature to achieve classic status. That film was Bringing Up Baby. This film, which is the first and only midget musical western, was released the same year and is as tormenting as watching your parents play "grab-ass". <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=terroroftinytown.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/terroroftinytown.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    I've often wondered if little people find these films sad and offensive. This certainly isn't the only film that exploited those with dwarfism (The Wizard Of Oz comes to mind) but it's one of the most outlandish.

    a western cast entirely of midgets--i don't remember it being as such "good" but if you can find it, watch it!
