Overview

Synopsis

The Texan
Produced in 1930 by Poverty Row entrepreneur William Pizor, this shoddy Western starring silent screen cowboy Buffalo Bill, Jr. (aka Jay Wilsey) remained on the shelf until it was released by Sol Lesser's Principal Distributing Corp. in 1932. Unjustly accused of a crime and on the lam, Bill Rusk (Bill, Jr.) hides out in Trona County, where he gets in on a crooked betting scheme. He reconsiders, however, when lovely Mary Lou (Lucile Browne) borrows money against her mortgage in order to bet on Bill's horse "Chile" in the big race. Bill manages to win the race, despite the threats of his former cohorts, and he turns himself over to the sheriff. Mary Lou and young sidekick Bobby (Bobby Nelson) promise to wait for him. ~ Hans J.

Rawhide Romance
The seventh of eight terrible Westerns produced by Victor Adamson's comically misnamed Superior Talking Pictures, Rawhide Romance was reportedly filmed for around 2,500 dollars, a ridiculous amount even for the height of the depression. The story concerns a Western dude ranch under siege by a gang of outlaws, one of whom, Jack Evans, masquerades as a ranch hand. The gang is after rich Easterner Lafe McKee, whose daughter is to be betrothed to handsome ranch foreman Buffalo Bill Jr. A misunderstanding occurs and the two lovebirds are found in the same bunk house together -- less than fully clothed. A shotgun wedding is one solution to the moral dilemma and the local circuit rider is called to perform the ceremony. The minister is ambushed by gang leader Boris Bullock, who sees a way to gain access to the wealthy ranch guests. With larceny on his mind, gang leader Boris Bullock impersonates the local minister in order to gain access to a priceless piece of jewelry. The villain's true identity is quickly revealed, happily, and the real circuit rider arrives to perform the ceremony. Several members of this film's cast and crew worked under an alias of some kind, beginning with producer Adamson, who also billed himself Denver Dixon or Art Mix. Hero Buffalo Bill Jr. was increasingly known as Jay Wilsey, while the lead villain, Boris Bullock, had starred as Kit Carson and played supporting roles as William Barrymore. ~ Hans J.
