Trouble, Double Trouble, and the Son of Trouble

In 1908 Jack Johnson, ‘The Galveston Giant,’ became the heavyweight boxing champion of the world.  After winning that title, he toured North America, and in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, challengers were offered large sums of money to step into the ring with the champion. The idea was that some dumb sucker would fight the champ, and the crowd would see how magnificent the champion was.

A teenage boy from London accepted the challenge, and soon the champion was flat on his back, and the young boy was the victor. Victor Andrew de Bier Everleigh McLaglen was born in the East End of London of Scottish heritage. His father was a bishop in the Free Protestant Episcopal Church of England, but Victor and four of his eight brothers became actors. Victor McLaglen was most often seen as a character actor, often pretending to be Irish. Two years after starring in this adventure, he won the Academy Award for Best Actor, and in 1952 he won the award for Best Supporting Actor opposite John Wayne.

In this South American adventure Victor McLaglen is a gun-runner and smuggler who is always just one step ahead of the law. Fortunately, this story was filmed before the Hays Office code of ethics was enforced, because a year later, the hero of a movie could not be an outlaw, and the police inspector chasing him could never face a firing squad. Yes, I have given you a glimpse of the ending, but fear not, the fun of the story is the journey, and the ending will be much more exciting than this little tease. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
