Phantom of the Desert
A wild stallion is blamed for "kidnapping" local mares to build a harem! Cowboy Jack Perrin, however, believes the real culprit is smooth-talking Robert Walker (whose pencil-thin mustache was a dead giveaway of his evil intentions), and manages to rescue the stallion from the glue factory in the nick of time. Produced by that graveyard of silent screen western stars, Syndicate Film Exchange, this early sound oater died at the box-office because of inept sound recording and a silly script (by the veteran Carl Krusada who should have known better). It did feature one unusual scene, however; when the rogue stallion sees a wanted poster bearing his likeness, he simply eats it! ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Canyon Hawks
John R. Freuler's Big 4 Film Corp. released this early sound western starring stunt-man Yakima Canutt as a cowboy who sells his land to Virginia Browne Faire and her young brother (Buzz Barton). Virginia wants to raise sheep, but a group of beef men violently disagree, and Yak must rescue her from a kidnapping. The main villain is played by Wally Wales (before he changed his name to Hal Taliaferro), a silent western hero who alternated playing good and bad guys for Big 4. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
