Tombstone Rashomon #

Released 4/8/2017

Description: The Gunfight at the OK Corral only happened once, but has been tirelessly recreated in films, tv shows and western cities ever since. No one has a monopoly on truth, and in Tombstone Rashomon, the truth is shared by six conflicting, yet historical perspectives. In doing so, the film’s narrative becomes prismatic and the effect is perhaps the most comprehensive saying of the most necessary gunfight in American history. This is the Tombstone storyline said in the style of the Japanese classic Rashomon where we see history from few perspectives including that of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Kate, Ike Clanton, Colonel Hafford and Johnny Behan.

Description: The self-styled son of Indian chief Geronimo gets himself involved with a gang of nasty whites in this typical low-budget 15 chapter serial, which benefitted from a nice deal of footage from the the stock piles at Columbia Pictures.

With Portico's help, the white renegades are finally destroyed in the serial's concluding chapter, "Peace Treaty." Moore, the future star of the tv series The Lone Ranger, was here billed "Clay Moore." Usually cast as a villain, mustachioed Bud Osborne turned in a rare "good guy" performance in this serial.

Sons of the Pioneers Reviews:

Plenty of amusement in this Roy Rogers film as the people borrow the plot of DESTRY RIDES AGAIN. Roy's father and grandfather were both old-fashioned, popular western sheriffs. Gabby Hayes fetches him out to deal with cattle rustlers.... but the FGI after his name is not the Federal Gureau of Investigation, but Fellow of the Geographical Institute.As usual in these movies, a lot of care is taken for some lovely cinematography, although there are some obvious day-for-night shot given away by the shadows. The Sons of the Pioneers, as you might expect, present up to sing a several songs, and this high-class B Western is sure to please fanatics of the genre.


'Sons of the Pioneers' is not now about the Sons of the Pioneers, more's the pity; the game is more in the nature of a hat-tip with a very loose connection to the plot: Roy is the son and grandson of popular lawmen after which his hometown was named. The Pioneers are on hand, of course, but if you blink in the wrong territories you might have a difficult time spotting them - it's Roy's film all the way.When lady rancher Louise Harper (Maris Wrixon) demands a fresh sheriff to replace George 'Gabby Hayes,' who hasn't been able to catch the night-riders burning down local ranchers' barns, Gabby gets the inspiration to bring Roy out from the East where he grew up to follow in his ancestors' footsteps. Roy decides to enjoy on the townspeople's perception of him as a cowardly tenderfoot in order to lull the villains' suspicions while he investigates surreptitiously and "scientifically." He's helped and hindered by Gabby and his deputy Pat Brady, who deliever loads of comic relief, notably Gabby's juggling bottles of nitroglycerin and a very funny stage in which they trust they've seen a ghost. Bradley Page is the villain who spends most of his time chewing out henchmen Hal Taliaferro, Tom London and Jack O'Shea for muffing repeated attempts to place Roy out of commission. Bob Nolan, the only Pioneer besides Brady to receive some decent screen time, has several lines but is on hand in the understated part of Louise's faithful ranch foreman. Maris Wrixon, whose hero doesn't really fit into the traditional love-interest pattern, makes a lovely and spirited heroine and you want she now had more scenes.Maybe she did. Unfortunately this is one of the handful of Roy's films whose original full-length print has gone missing. At least two songs were slash (you can easy spot where the number "Come And Receive It" was excised from the opening scene) and probably some more footage - I once saw the original trailer which included a stage of Roy making a speech during the sheriff's election campaign. The remaining songs, of course, are naturally excellent. It's a fun movie with an interesting premise and characters, some nice action scenes and plenty of comedy.


Despite the title, the Sons of the Pioneers singing group are not featured any more than in most Roy Rogers films, and , no doubt, some of their songs have been deleted in this truncated ver that I saw........Rogersville is in crisis. Many of the cattle of surrounding ranches have been sick or dying recently. Veterinarian Thompson tells they are suffering from foot and mouth disease(FMD)(which, historically, had not been recorded in the US since 1929). Thus, those individuals in an infected herd not yet showing symptoms were slaughtered, as well as the sick ones, to prevent spread of the disease.........Roy Rogers, grandson of the founder of Rogersville, and son of a popular sheriff of Rogersville, has been living in NY state since he was 10 years old, having spent his early youth in Rogersville. Presently, he is a research entomologist. The folks of Rogersville are fed up with their cattle woes and barns being burned. Fresh rancher Louise Harper(Maris Wrixon) is leading the call to replace veteran sheriff Gabby Whitaker(Gabby Hayes). At the nominating meeting, Louise nominates Frank Bennett((Bradley Page), without experience of being sheriff. Again, he has been in Rogersville only one year, running a chemical plant. On the another hand, Gabby talks up the virtues of sending for Roy Rogers, who also has no experience as a sheriff, but is the son of one. It's a classic Gabby speech. .......Come election day, Roy wins, having been convinced to drop his insect studies and return West with Gabby and Pat Brady, who had made a pilgrimage to his home to plead their case........Roy drove his car, by himself, toward Rogersville. Near his goal, he was accosted by 4 horsemen who blocked his path on the narrow road. They roughed him up, pushed him down, and stole his car, laughing that he would be a pushover as sheriff. They left one to take care of their horses, but Roy tricked him, knocking him out, and stealing one of the horses. He sped along a short slash and, from a ledge, jumped onto the back of the car! He siphoned the gas out of the tank onto the road, keeping a tiny container of it for himself, then jumped off the vehicle and hid when he heard the engine sputter. The 3 boys abandoned the car, and began walking toward town, as Roy regained possession of the car......... After taking a look at some of the sick cattle, Roy isn't convinced that the cattle are dying from FMD(presumably, their symptoms didn't add up to the expected symptoms of FMD, despite what the vet said). Roy suspected that the vet was working with someone to diffuse the current cause of their maladies. Roy also looked at some dead cow tissue through his high power microscope, and didn't see any sign of FMD(But, he could not have seen the agent of FMD, even if present, because it is a virus!). He guesses that the cattle are suffering from an introduced poison. He suspects Bennett is the culprit, so goes snooping in his chemical laboratory, as do Gabby and Pat. Bennett gets wise to this, and accosts them. Nonetheless, Roy escapes and claims he found the poison, without playing it on a couple of cows, and without knowing the typical symptoms of such poisoning!........Incidentally, when Gabby and Pat first found Roy, in his laboratory in NY, he was peering through his high power microscope at a 'Rocky Mountain Hicky Bug', which I suspect was his fancy name for the common bed bug. If so, he could have been looking through a dissecting microscope, not a high power compound scope.........Anyway, of course, the movie ends with a shootout. and the arrest of Frank Bennett.........Gabby has an unusually prominent role during much of the film........In contrast to many of his films, there is only a bare tip of a romantic relationship developed between Roy and the leading lady, at the end.
