(aka 'Rocky Mountain Mystery' or 'The Vanishing Pioneer')

Directed by Charles Barton
USA 1935

 

  An unusual 'who-done-it' western from 1935 with the stalwart Randolph Scott and a fine supporting cast trudging through rather clunky dialogue. But this film does have the charm of others made in this era - innocent production values and limited adventure. It was very interesting seeing Ann Sheridan even in such an early minor role. Classic film fans will get a lot out of this, but anyone else will throw in the towel even before the 65 minute running time concludes.

Comments:

This very frugal DVD has the distinction of the strangest extra feature I have ever seen. For a 1935 western I can only smile at the inclusion of "Radiation March" from the 'National Dance Institute - the Troma Team' - a kind of formal modern dance routine with an embedded message on a backdrop of alleyway graffiti. It will leave you scratching your head I guarantee. Perhaps one of the performers was a distant relative of Randolph Scott. Who knows?

The transfer is expectedly weak and maybe even a notch below that. Direct from analog, occasional lights scratches showing, no subtitles, weak to midland audio... but I still recommend it. The price is sure right and there was at least an honest (or dishonest) attempt at a package here. This viewing experience would be akin to watching it on the tube one late lonely night, but its rather rare so your $8 would be well, spent if you are at all keen.
