Overview

Synopsis

The Three Musketeers: Rebel Rifles
His Private Secretary
A very young John Wayne is atypically cast as a randy playboy in His Private Secretary. Much to the dismay of his businessman father, Dick Wallace (Wayne) prefers a life of wine, women and more women to honest work. The elder Wallace demands that Dick take a job as his company's collection manager, and it is in this capacity that our hero heads to the small town of Somerville to collect a debt. Here he meets pretty Marion (Evelyn Knapp), the granddaughter of the man from whom Dick must extract overdue payments. Immediately putting the moves on Marion, Dick is rebuffed with a slap and several harsh words -- and for the first time in his life, the prodigal son is really in love! Inevitably, Marion ends up working as a secretary for Dick's dad, driving the poor boy crazy in his efforts to make up for his previous boorish behavior. Excerpts from His Private Secretary have frequently shown up in TV documentaries about John Wayne, as "proof" of his inability to act in his pre-John Ford years. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Dropkick
The silent The Dropkick stars Richard Barthelmess as a talented but hopelessly conceited college football star. Because of his frequent clashes with his coach, Barthelmess is the prime suspect when said coach is murdered. He manages to clear himself just in time to win the Big Game. Of interest to sports fans is the presence in the cast of the 10 top college football players of 1927. Together with The Patent Leather Kid, The Dropkick was Richard Barthelmess' biggest moneymaker during his tenure at First National Studios. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
