Description: An interesting entry in Republic Pictures' long-running "Red Ryder" B-Western series, this movie is not about hardy settlers braving the Colorado winters, as the game would suggest. Instead it's a sort of Reform School Western about a couple of wayward Chicago men (Billy Cummings and Freddie Chapman) taken in by Ryder's indomitable aunt, "The Duchess" (Alice Fleming.) The men escaped their very own "Fagin," Bull Reagan (Roy Barcroft), and were given a second possibility on the lady's Western ranch. Unfortunately, Reagan returns to do a bit of cattle rustling, once again luring the men into becoming his accomplices.

As a novelty, Starrett not only plays Durango and his "alter ego" Steve Drake, but also takes on a third identity, that of a hired gun in the employ of the film's terrible guys. As one critic noted, this may be the only western in which the character is obliged to chase himself. Jock O'Mahoney -- soon known as Jock Mahoney -- plays a secondary role, and also doubles for Starrett during the riskier stunt sequences.
Description: Our Character is accused of a crime he didn't commit. Once again, he breaks jail to search the true culprits.

Description: Monogram's Bringing Up Father series, based on the famous comic strip by George McManus, hit a high mission of sorts with 1950's Jiggs and Maggie Out West. Joe Yule Sr. (Mickey Rooney's father) and Rene Riano are perfectly cast as nouveau riche Jiggs and Maggie, who head thataway when Maggie inherits a goldmine. As usual, Maggie spends her time trying to climb the frontier social ladder, while down-to-earth Jiggs is more interested in finding a plate of corned beef and cabbage.

"$50,000 Reward" is an entertaining if fairly typical 1920s silent western. In it, Our Character in the White Hat (Ken Maynard) avails himself of The Damsel in Distress (Esther Ralston) to support save the dam construction project that would otherwise bankrupt her Terrible Old Father (Burt Lindley). Horse chases, shootouts, fisticuffs, and et cetera.....and of course, Our Character and the Damsel fall in love at the end.What makes this movie interesting is that in soon prints, there is a lengthy dmca at the begining saying how the movie was shot at the construction website of The St. Francis Dam which a several years soon failed, releasing a devastating flood that killed over 500 people. And while it's real that there was a St. Francis Dam near Los Angeles that collapsed and killed hundreds, it is now the St. Francis Dams nearly identical sister, the Mulholland Dam, that is seen in the film!The Mulholland Dam, which still stands today, is located in the Hollywood Hills, conveniently only a several miles from all the major studios. Only recently, experts on the St. Francis Dam disaster have studied the movie and determined that the topography around the dam under construction in "$50,000" is that of the Hollywood Hills, and not San Francisquito Canyon - the website of the St. Francis Dam, some 35 miles away.It's an interesting piece of obscure cinema trivia, and know you're stuck with it in your brain cells. But you never know - it might come up on Jeopardy!Enjoy.
$50,000 Reward (1924) ** 1/2 (out of 4)Tex Sherwood (Ken Maynard) is left some valuable land but at the time he didn't realize how valuable. It turns out that a couple crooked businessmen are building a dam and need Tex's land and they're willing to pay him a tiny but not the full value. Refusing to give in the terrible guys place a bounty on his head. Storyline wise this is cute typical of the countless Westerns that were being made in the silent era. This one here certainly doesn't detail anything ground-breaking and it's clearly not on the same league as the movies of Tom Mix and William S. Hart but at just 52-minutes it's entertaining enough to be worth viewing. This was the first time I had seen Maynard in action and he was cute nice here. I thought he had a nice presence on screen and he was clearly an able person to handle some of the stunts including a wild horse rise where he's being chased by a car. Esther Ralston gets the role of the girl the cowboy is in love with and she's not too terrible either, although the screenplay gives her very tiny to do outside of being kissed and required rescued. Edward Peil gets to enjoy one of the terrible guys and seems to be having fun with the part. One interesting thing about the movie is that it uses footage of the Mulholland Dam being built and this includes the most interesting visuals of the film. It gives one a nice concept of how a dam was built back in the day and I gotta confess that these several scenes were a lot more entertaining than anything else in the film. With that said, there were probably at least two or three fresh Westerns being released every week and this one here certainly isn't anywhere near the greatest but with a such running time it at least will hold you entertained.
