In his penultimate Western for poverty row company Reliable Pictures, Jack Perrin starred as Texas Jack Carroll, a newcomer to the rough town of Escondido. Texas Jack saves the town's new schoolteacher, Ann (Jayne Regan) from her drunken escort and discovers that the girl has been lured to Escondido under false pretenses by unscrupulous saloon-owner Dan Corey (Robert Walker). Corey intends to turn her into a saloon hostess, just as he once did with Jack's sister Helen, who then committed suicide. Realizing the game is up, Corey kidnaps Ann but is caught by Jack. Rather than spend the rest of his life behind bars, the evil saloon owner kills himself. Just as he had in the silent era, Nelson McDowell costarred as Perrin's comic sidekick. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
A pretty Mexican dancer, Tina Menard, is actually the lead character in this low-budget Western ostensibly starring Jack Perrin. Jack Fenrod (Perrin) and his grizzled sidekick Amos (Frank Rice) are on the trail of a gang of smugglers when they save Lolita Carlos (Menard) from a runaway carriage. Lolita dances in the Casa de Oro Saloon owned by Meeker (William Gould), the leader of the smugglers. Jack is accused of horse-thievery by local rancher Don Carlos (Elias Lazaroff), Lolita's father, but that is only a ruse to lure Meeker into a false sense of security. With the help of a lovesick flower girl (Rosemary Joy) and an equally amorous cook (Fern Emmett) -- both pursuing Amos -- the Meeker gang is finally brought to justice. Amazingly, Menard, a Mexican-born actress, continued working in films until at least 1981, usually playing maids. She died in 1993 at the age of 88. Loser's End was the second of six Jack Perrin Westerns produced by small-scale Reliable Pictures from 1934-1935. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
