DVD "Back Fire" (1922) starring Jack Hoxie, Lew Meehan, Classic Silent Western

Review Heroes with white hats contend with desperadoes who stay one jump ahead of the law as the Old West comes to life in two exciting and unusual Westerns from the silent era.

Border Sheriff (1926, B&W): There's action from sea to shining sea when Arizona lawman Sheriff Jack Collins is summoned to Washington, D.C. by the Secret Service and assigned to smash a U.S. - Mexico smuggling ring. The trail leads Collins to a notorious dive in San Francisco's Chinatown, "The Orient of America," and then back to Arizona, with plenty of brawls, gunplay and a leading lady convinced that Collins is one of the outlaws! Starring Jack Hoxie, Olive Hasbrouck, Al Jennings; Directed by Robert N. Bradbury.

The Last Chance (1926, B&W): Comically inept cowpoke Bill Dexter stumbles into the camp of renegade highwaymen who have just held up a stagecoach, stolen a payroll shipment and kidnapped the driver. Dexter announces that he wants to join the gang -- and that he eventually intends to become their leader! The laughter stops when he proves more than adept with guns and fists. Starring William 'Bill' Patton, Dorothy Donald, Merrill McCormick; Written and Directed by Horace B. Carpenter.


The Westerns: Rare Films Of Jack Hoxie

Review While tracking smugglers near the Canadian border, Sheriff Layne is ambushed and left for dead. He is rescued by two wandering cowboys, Jack Meadows and Toby Jones. Determined to find the men responsible for the attempted murder, Jack and Toby follow the smuggler's tracks back into town. Their only clue is a horse that is missing half of a shoe, so they take up jobs at the local blacksmith shop. But the pair must work quickly before the smugglers frame them for the attack on the Sheriff.

Cowboy star Jack Hoxie appeared in over a hundred silent westerns in the 1910s and 1920s, his popularity based largely on his rugged looks and his championship skills on horseback. After a half dozen talkies in the 1930s, Hoxie retired from films and left Hollywood to star in his own western-style circus. Co-star Marin Sais was Hoxie's wife at the time this movie was filmed, but they divorced three years later. Taking a rare turn in front of the camera in Riders of the Law is movie makeup legend, Jack Pierce, best known to filmgoers for his brilliant, classic work on Universal's Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Mummy (1932) and The Wolf Man (1941).


Silent Western Double Feature: The Border Sheriff / The Last Chance (Silent)

Review The Desert Rider (1923, B&W, Silent): Prospector Dan Baird is shot by outlaw Rufe Kinkaid, who steals the map to his secret gold mine. The assault is witnessed by Baird's young son, who waves down rancher Jack Sutherland. Jack vows to raise the boy and track down his father's killer. Cowboy star Jack Hoxie appeared in over a hundred silent westerns in the 1910s and 1920s, his popularity based largely on his rugged looks and his championship skills on horseback. After a half-dozen talkies in the 1930s, Hoxie retired from films and left Hollywood to star in his own western-style circus. Directed by Robert N. Bradbury.

Arizona Days (1928, B&W, Silent): Every day's a bad day in Black Rock as rustlers prey on the herds of local ranchers. Chuck, an undercover investigator, arrives to ferret out the badmen, but his task is complicated by the interference of beautiful Dolly Martin, who can't figure out which side of the law Chuck is on. The movie's villains are played by its director (J.P. McGowan) and writer (Mack V. Wright). Bob Custer didn't begin life as a cowboy, as many stars of silent Westerns did. But this university-educated Kentuckian still looked the part, and his white-hat characters could ride, fight and shoot with the best of 'em. Directed by J.P. McGowan.

Bonus content includes Broncho Billy's Sentence (1915, B&W, Silent).
