I viewed a 1937 Hollywood Film Exchange reissue of this film, with no cast of director credits on the new title card. The dialogue cards throughout the film seem to be original, but I don't know if the film was edited down at all from its original length--this copy runs 12:22. While most of the community is away at a lynching (!!!), a group of crooks plan to rob a Wells Fargo office. They have a young man tied up who is their prisoner and who they feel will talk (as we don't see him get kidnapped, I wonder if the film is cut?). He manages to escape but gets shot and informs his brother, the hero of the piece, played by J.B.Warner, a lanky man who to me resembled a young William S. Hart if played without any irony by James Woods. Warner, from Nebraska, died of TB at a young age and few of his films are in circulation today. I think I've seen one other many years ago. The sheriff is played by portly supporting actor Robert McKenzie (who had a sound career also, and was wonderful as the cowardly attorney working for town boss Wheeler Oakman in the 1936 Tim McCoy vehicle THE MAN FROM GUNTOWN), who does some physical comedy and packs five guns in his belt! Shorts like this are admirable for their no-nonsense attitude and for wasting no screen time--the "sets", such as they are, are probably full of found elements, and real buildings are usually used for outdoor shots, which give the films a nice sense of place and a kind of realism. They tell a complete story, efficiently and with atmosphere, in a short time and still entertain today. What more could we ask?
