| Not much in the way of plot...but modestly entertaining.
"Pierre of the Plains" is a B-movie. A B is a picture that was intended as the second and lesser film for a double-feature. And, since it was a lesser movie, they ran from about 55-65 minutes--far shorter than the A-movie. While many low-budget studios specialized in Bs (such as Monogram and Republic), even the big-name studios like Warner, Twentieth Century-Fox and MGM made Bs...and this one is from MGM, so it looks a bit better than normal.

Pierre (John Carroll) is a French-Canadianwho always seems to be getting in to one scrape after another. During the course of this film, he gets in fights, ruins a wedding (as he wants the girl for himself), assists a guy with a jail break and gambles. While there is kind of a plot...it's mostly Pierre swaggering about and being a bit of a jerk-face. In fact, this makes the movie a bit tough to take...as he's not particularly likable. Not an awful B- movie...but one with a strange story and a weird anti-hero.
