Whose Jigolo Are You, Hers or Mine?

Two actors that were both forty-two years old when this movie premiered caught my attention. One of them for what I believe is a rare audio mistake during the first years of the Hays office censoring era. The other, for her one and only movie appearance.

In the saloon, where much of the story takes place, there is a blonde woman selling flowers. Her screen credit is for ‘Rosemary Joye,’ and I can find only one Rosemary Joye during that time period, and she was born in Texas only twelve years before this movie was filmed. Her mother was Texas born Bertha Mary Wirz-Martin, born in 1893, making her mother forty-two years old when this movie was made. I think that Bertha appeared in this movie, using her young daughter’s name for the screen credit.

The other actor that surprised me was forty-two-year-old Frank Rice, the crusty sidekick of the cowboy hero. Frank Rice was a character actor who had been appearing mostly in cowboy movies since the beginning of the Hollywood era of motion pictures. With over 140 movies to his credit, he would sadly pass a year after this movie at the age of forty-three. The shocking moment in the movie that almost made me fall out of my chair happened about forty-seven and a half minutes into the adventure.

The bad guy is riding hard down a trail towards the Mexico border with Frank Rice, as Amos Butts, hot on his trail. There is a long shot of the trail with the bad guy racing south in the distance, and then a shot of sidekick Amos Butts racing down the same trail. Listen closely, because the voice is from a distance, but sidekick Amos clearly prods his horse faster with a phrase that begins with a swear phrase that is impolite to say even today, ending with ‘Come on.’

Obviously, whoever screened this movie for the Hays Office clearly missed this one phrase, and it may be the worst miss that ever happened in the strict censoring days. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
