Movie Info

A pageant-like Rex Beach story was the source of the 1937 western The Barrier. Leo Carrillo is top-billed, but the main character is half-breed girl Jean Parker. Actually, Parker is a full-blooded white woman; she has been raised to believe that she is of mixed blood by Robert H. Barrat, who has spent the better part of his life seeking revenge against Parker's mother. When the girl falls for army officer James Ellison, she despairs, believing that the laws against miscegenation will never permit her to marry the man she loves. The Barrier was produced by Harry Sherman, of Hopalong Cassidy fame, and directed by frequent "Hoppy" contributor Lesley Selander.

  • Rapid action, good character work and some magnificent mountain scenery, make the picture worth seeing. Though not outstanding, it can pull more than its weight on a double bill.
