The Dynamic Duo of Poverty Row Movies

Simon and Josephine Neufeldt emigrated from Budapest, Hungary to the Bronx area of New York City just before 1900. As many European names changed upon coming to America, Neufeldt became Neufeld for son Sigmund Neufeld. His younger brother chose a different spelling, becoming Sam Newfield. Together they made many of the low-budget movies during the golden age of motion pictures.

While there are no accurate records of every movie producer and director during the early years, it is widely believed that Sam Newfield directed more motion pictures than any other person then or now. Due to the early death of their father, older brother Sigmund quit school to deliver beer to saloons, then sold newspapers and fresh fruit on street corners in New York.

Sigmund then got a job as a delivery boy for a local tailor and dry-cleaning shop, and that job changed his life, and the life of his younger brother Sam. When Sigmund was given some suits to deliver to the head of the Universal Pictures office in New York City, he refused to give the garments to anyone in the building other than the man himself.

When the head of Universal Pictures in New York City met Sigmund and discovered his persistence and passion for his work, Sigmund was hired as a ‘go-fer’ – doing the menial jobs that needed done around the production company. Sigmund’s passion, dedication, and work ethic were noticed and his rise from delivery boy to prodigious producer was very quick. He brought his brother Sam into the company as a director and together they became the dynamic duo of Poverty Row productions.

In this cowboy adventure they employed the new technology of split-screen to enable Al St. John to appear on screen at the same time as rancher Andy Jones and twin brother Johnathan Fuzzy Jones.  The doctor and the deputy sheriff are using outlaws headed by legendary cowboy bad-guy Charles King, to drive out the ranchers, and kill them if they don’t leave peaceably. When rancher Andy Jones is gunned down and buried, his twin brother comes to town to make things right, pretending to be the ghost of his dead brother. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
