Overview

Synopsis

Desert Greed
With titles such as "If a mule had my brain it will still be a mule!" this minor Yakima Canutt Western from Ben Wilson's Goodwill Productions is typical low-budget silent action fare. Yak is an off-duty ranger visiting the town of Peaceful Valley. Belying its name, the place turns out to be a den of inequity, what with nasty, whip-wielding Sam Lucas (Dick LaReno) forcing his stepdaughter Mary (Rose Blossom) into marrying crooked lawyer William Devlin (Henry J. Hebert). Devlin runs a lucrative smuggling business and has a cheap-looking floozie (Lucille Younge) stashed away, but Yak is on to him after overhearing the confession of a dying accomplice. Despite its age and innate cheapness, Desert Greed contains several quite strong sequences, such as Boy, Canutt's "Horse in a Million," busting his master out of jail, or LaReno whipping poor Rose Blossom into submission. A trifle plump, perhaps, by modern standards, the blond Miss Blossom was a popular leading lady to also-ran cowboys like Canutt, Bill Cody and Wallace MacDonald. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Hellhounds of the Plains
A gang of horse thieves known as the Hell Hounds terrorize Apache Basin, Arizona rancher Big John Lawson and blackmail his daughter Ester, forcing the desperate father to turn to Sheriff Barnes and Deputy Yak Hammond to protect his family and his livelihood. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
