Movie Details

The Fox company signed young Carole Lombard (billing her "Carol") to a contract after she tested for and won the female lead opposite Edmund Lowe in Marriage in Transit (1925). This average Buck Jones western was her follow-up. Carole plays a young prairie flower whose brother (Freeman Wood) is on a path to a life of crime. Along comes cowboy Jones, who gallantly takes the blame for a killing to save Carole's brother. Lombard suffered a near-fatal car accident shortly after finishing this film, returning to Fox after months of recuperation only to find her contract cancelled. Happily, she was immediately signed up by Mack Sennett, who obviously knew what he was doing. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
