Powdersmoke Range 1935 Harry Carey Action Adventure
Starring: Harry Carey, Hoot Gibson, Boots Mallory
Powdersmoke Range Story Line. New ranch owners Tucson, Stony, and Lullaby find their legal papers missing and cattle rustled. The culprit is Ogden and his stooge Deputy Glascow. When the trio fight back, Ogden brings in Saunders, the fastest gun around who Tucson agrees to meet at sundown.
Powdersmoke Range is the sort of guilty pleasure that your cultural guardians will have warned you about. The enjoyment here lies almost entirely in watching grouchy old Harry Carey, Hoot Gibson and Bob Steele go through their paces, spouting arch dialogue and referring to a code of values which, if they ever existed, only did so in Westerns up until 1940.
Carey is the prime draw and, to modern eyes, his combination of granddad and gunfighter takes some getting used to. But ultimately the faded humanity of the man, his solid gravitas, makes us care about him. Even in this forgotten B-Western he displays star quality and on-screen presence that’s difficult to forget.
This film is the sort of guilty pleasure that your cultural guardians will have warned you about. The enjoyment here is not in the hokey plot (well, OK it is a bit), or the cinematography, or the music. It lies almost entirely in watching grouchy old Harry Carey, Hoot Gibson and Bob Steele go through their paces, spouting arch dialogue and referring to a code of values.
