A "special" by Monogram standards, Lure of the Wasteland was lensed in a not inexpensive process called Telco-color. Grant Withers takes a break from his duties in the "Mister Wong" series to play Smitty, a US marshal assigned to track down $250,000 in stolen bonds. To gain the confidence of the outlaws, Smitty pulls the old ploy of posing as a crook and joining the gang. Despite his mental agility in plotting and planning large-scale robberies, outlaw leader Butch (LeRoy Mason) is unable to see through Smitty's guise until it's too late for him. Former silent comedy star Snub Pollard, fresh from a comic-sidekick stint in Grand National's Tex Ritter series, plays a relatively straight role as a reformed crook who acts as Smitty's go-between. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
West of the Rockies
It is difficult to explain why the fly-by-night distribution firm of Road Show Pictures dragged the silent sagebrusher West of the Rockies off the shelf in 1931, three years into the talkie era. Outfitted with an unconvincing beard, Ben Lyon is cast as frontier scout Kit Carson, leading a wagon train through Indian country. Heroine Marie Prevost is in love with Carson, but he prefers to spend his time with Gladys Johnston. An Indian attack and buffalo stampede, obviously lifted from another picture, have been arbitrarily inserted in the narrative. The only other recognizable actors in the picture were Russell Simpson and Anders Randolph. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
