Movie Details

Silent B-Western star Jack Perrin was adorned with not one but two beautiful leading ladies -- Jean Arthur and Peggy O'Day -- in this obscure oater released by poverty row company Anchor. Perrin played Ranger Jack Foster, on the trail of evil Red Sampson (Lew Meehan), the villain who murdered an old prospector (John Pringle). Along the way, Perrin liberates "bandit queen" Ora Perdue (O'Day) and falls in love with the murder victim's daughter, Betty (Arthur, in one of her first films). Slightly ungainly and obviously battling a weight problem, Perrin was nevertheless a charming performer when given the right material and actually one of the era's better also-ran cowboy stars. Travelin' Fast was produced and directed by the one-legged and notoriously careless Robert J. Horner. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
