Trouble in Red Rock
William Joseph Cody was born in 1891, and acted in silent cowboy movies starting in 1924, but by 1932 he was out of motion pictures and touring the country with a Wild West show. He was not related to William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody, and in his first movies he acted under the name Paul Walters, so he wouldn't be confused with the famous Buffalo Bill.
Bill Cody made his final major cowboy westerns in the 1930's with independent producers, and was known for his love for a good cowboy fight scene, often arranging to battle much larger men than himself. In this story he is a happy-go-lucky cowboy in Red Rock who helps capture a gang of outlaws while spending time in the local saloon. For his bravery he receives a large cash reward and decides to go off on a holiday away from Red Rock, camping alone in the Wild West wilderness.
One day while fixing a meal by a small stream, nearby an outlaw is robbing a rancher and his daughter of the ten thousand dollars that they were heading to the bank with to pay off the mortgage, and the fleeing outlaw sees our hero's horse and swaps his stolen horse for our hero's horse. When the gun-toting rancher's daughter gives chase to the outlaw she discovers the stolen horse . . . next to our hero who is happily whistling a tune and frying his breakfast.
Our hero is accused of stealing the money and must prove his innocence and help capture the real bad guy, albeit with a couple of extended and rousing fist fights. One of the characters that you should take note of is character actor Milburn Morante, who is the barfly always trying to get someone to buy him a drink. He was a Vaudeville comedian who migrated to motion pictures, but never to star status. You will usually see him in small bit parts and seldom with as many good scenes as in this cowboy classic. For all the cowboy adventures that I have watched so far this is by far the best presentation of the man that I have ever seen. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
