Trick rider and Hollywood western icon Ken Maynard stars in Tombstone Canyon, a mysterious and intriguing Wild West tale. Filmed in the beautiful Red Rock Canyon State Park, the picture features a Maynard riding through gorgeous countryside in pursuit of his fatherâs murderer. When Maynard arrives in Tombstone Canyon, as spooky looking as its name suggests, Maynard learns about The Black Phantom thatâs killing off Cowboys. Maynard believes this could be his fatherâs killer, but the rest of the town accuses Maynard of being the masked murderer! Thrilling, chilling, and compelling, Tombstone Canyon lets one of the greatest movie star cowboys shine.
Take Me Back to Oklahoma is a delightful western featuring the music of Tex Ritter and "The King of Western Swing" Bob Willis with the Texas Playboys. It's the prototypical western story: outlaws, beautiful lasses, and runaway stagecoaches, featuring able western actors. But it's the music that stars in Take Me Back to Oklahoma. The songs include Good Old Oklahoma, Lone Star Rag, and The Bob Willis Special. Worthy of watching for the crooning and picking alone, Take Me Back to Oklahoma is unfaltering entertainment from reel to reel.
Thundering Thompson is a silent western filmed in the nineteen twenties. The dashing Cheyenne Bill, one of the most under appreciated cowboy stars in history, must fight his way through terrible perils in order to set things right. Bill is a deputy sheriff, and the sheriff sends him to arrest a beautiful young girl (Neva Gerber). Upon arriving, Bill learns that the sheriff is corrupt and only wants to steal the girlâs land. Never one to stand aside, Cheyenne Bill is willing to fight everyone in town to save both the girlâs property and honor. A film that was almost meant to be silent, the treasure in Thundering Thompson comes from its well choreographed and well executed action sequences, without stuntmen. Itâs a joy to watch the heroic Cheyenne Bill fights no matter the odds, no matter the terrain, the memorable climactic struggle breaking out in a river!
As the title betrays, Songs and Saddles is a quaint and enjoyable piece of Wild West musical Americana. Gene Austin was already a country music star, possibly the first ever true âcrooner.â Songs and Saddles puts Austin on center stage, playing a cowboy hero who stops every once in a while to play a tune or two. In fact, Austin embarked on a singing tour with the film, showing it at his performances. The story is a western classic: a rancher is trying to be bought out by villains who know the value of the land is about to skyrocket. Austin does surprisingly well in the saddle for a first time cowboy, but the real joy of the film is to be found in the wonderful music. Songs and Saddles is a great way to enjoy country music from the nineteen thirties.

Six-Gun Rhythm features masterful crooner Tex Fletcher as a singing Wild West hero, but there’s a twist: Fletcher isn’t a cowboy! Most unusual for these films, Fletcher is a football star on the East Coast who’s heading out West to investigate his father’s murder. The film is a startlingly fresh blend of action and song, making it one of the best Westerns of the nineteen thirties. Six-Gun Rhythm builds to a (literally) blistering climax, when Fletcher takes on his father’s murderer in a sandstorm! Though Fletcher would not go on to a long movie career, at least he left us this nugget of cinematic Wild West gold.
