early john wayne
26 Year old John Wayne is Captain Holmes in this short shortie from Warner Brothers. The US guv-ment is trying to convince land-owners to register their land, or it will be declared open land. Holmes has been ordered to get the large ranchers to register their land to avoid property wars, and his first challenge is "Castanares", owner of a very large ranch. Slim Whitaker is "Morgan", who wants to make sure the landowners DON'T register their deed, so they can get the ranch and the land, free of charge. Would be interesting to know the locations, but was probably the director's house or maybe Corriganville in north LA. It's all okay. Wayne is still the young, energetic, wide-eyed kid, on a mission. He's not yet the older, wiser, all-knowing gentleman of an older generation. He comes to the rescue of Dolores ( Ruth Hall ), the don's daughter. and SOMEONE is dressed up in drag, but we're not sure quite who! Kind of a funny bit where Holmes and the good guys are running from room to room to escape the bad guys, and it looks like a scene from Scooby Doo. or maybe the three stooges. and a sword fight breaks out. and Duke the horse goes for help as oats are being burned by the bushel. It's not bad. shows on Turner Classic. directed by Mack Wright. certainly important for john wayne fans.
