| Enjoyable but unique early Steele talkie
This is an unexpected delight of a B-western from late 1930. I don't see how it could have been marketed for kids at the time, as it is like a western stage play, with minimal outdoor action. Faces and acting are expressively intense, and the lighting surrounding Blanche is gloriously soft and illuminating. Otherwise this picture is dusky and gritty. Issues of the heart and morality are big. I didn't realize I was watching something special until it was half way over (in fact I watched the first half twice before I even got to the second half). As the years evolved, Bob Steele reliably appeared in well-produced, story-centered B-westerns, but the films always contained plenty of hero-type action, but this movie was different for sure. This film will transport the viewer to another time and place.
