Without Honors
Though well past 50, Harry Carey could still play a virile and convincing cowboy hero in such inexpensive westerns as Without Honors. Carey is cast as Jack Marian, a gambler with an unsavory past. Suspected of being an outlaw, Carey plays along with this misconception, the better to infiltrate a gang of smugglers. Along the way, he clears the name of the brother of Texas ranger Mike Donovan, and helps patch up the romance between Donovan and heroine Mary Jane Irving. Among the supporting players are Gibson Gowland, previously the star of Erich Von Stroheim's silent classic Greed, and the "ever popular" Mae Busch, taking a break from her usual duties in the Laurel and Hardy comedies. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Border Devils
Weather-beaten Harry Carey stars as an old-time Westerner who ends up in jail on a trumped-up charge. Carey busts out of the calaboose to prove his innocence and unmask the genuine culprit, Albert J. Smith. It turns out that Smith is in league with a mysterious frontier Fu Manchu, who's been operating a lucrative alien-smuggling racket. Our hero likewise reveals the identity of the mystery villain, who spends most of the picture as a mere shadow on the wall. Based on a novel by Murray Lenister, Border Devils evidently underwent a great deal of rewriting from script to screen, if its pressbook (containing an entirely different synopsis) is any indication. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
