| Feuding over the government mail contract
Minor silent screen cowboy star Wally Wales who later reinvented himself as western character player Hal Taliaferro stars in this early sound western Red Fork Range. Wales plays a frontier scout who gets involved with two stagecoach lines bidding for the government mail contract.

This was done for a poverty row outfit Big 4 Pictures and it certainly shows all around. The worst thing about it was the sound quality, I could barely make out the dialog. A lot of stock western footage no doubt left over from silent days got a music track added. I might have enjoyed the climax involving a stagecoach race better with better sound.

Wally Wales was a minor league cowboy hero from the silent days. But he got as his leading lady Ruth Mix, daughter of Tom Mix who was in the Twenties the king of cowboy heroes before Roy Rogers appropriated that title. She was certainly western royalty of sorts.

These poverty row films are in the public domain because no one wanted to spend the time and money to extend the copyright on items like Red Fork Range. I doubt we'll see a director's cut.
