| Great Early Talkie
This is a great early Buck Jones western. It is Buck's second talking movie and was made for Columbia in 1930. It is neatly packaged and represents, in my opinion, one of the very best of the B-Western genre. Buck plays a wandering cowboy whose best friend is an older gent named Ranny Williams. Ranny is played by Frank Rice who turns in a top notch performance, especially when he tells Buck that he is tired of wandering from one outfit to another, and when he reminisces about his old friend right before he goes off to town and is shot in the back.

Another great scene is when Buck comes to Shadow Ranch just as the townspeople are burying Ranny. Buck silently rides by the graveside service and removes his hat as he passes by in respect, not knowing it is his old friend they are burying.

The rest of the film deals with Buck taking up the fight for his old pal and the female owner of Shadow Ranch.

This is a special movie.
