      Logan M A boring, poorly made low-budget b-movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/12/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the early John Wayne but very good yes I recommend it James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas March 4, 2023 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/06/23 Full Review deke p Historic if only cuz very early, 1934, JOHN WAYNE cowboy rodeo talkie, from early days of talkies. Its been colorized. Unsophisticated. Some externded footage of actua BIG TIME RODEOS AND Crowds. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member TMFU's gritty rodeo scene is quite impressive. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Great classic... the acting is not some of the best work nor is the extra staff but his usual group surrounds him such as Gabby George Hayes and Yakima Kanutt.. may have misspelled that one.. but as usual the DUKE gets the girl... note it was re conditioned and colorized in the mid 1990's... John Wayne again as John Weston.. worth a watch for any Duke buff.. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review kris g Assuming the prerequisite of being able to stomach the brand of Z-grade westerns Lone Star cranked out over 80 years ago is met, you'll find this to be one of the more memorable and entertaining oaters from the period available. Lean and mean with a run time of less than an hour, the movie opens by treating you to a laughably bad dub job of the Duke on horseback singing a song. The encore is by far the cheesiest, fourth wall breaking grin you'll ever see from John Wayne. What follows is thankfully a much needed shift in tone to a get-to-the-bottom-of-this story about the mysterious and sudden deaths of several rodeo riders. Being such a short flick the movie gets to the point right away, offers generous action on horseback and with a six gun plus the obligatory and always welcome presence of Gabby Hayes. I just described damn near every early to mid 30s John Wayne western and for me, this one hit the spot. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
