Here are two very rare early B-Western shorts. Jack Perrin's THE APACHE KID'S ESCAPE (1930) lasts 45min. and is in pretty good shape for one of the first cowboy talkies. It seems that bad-guy turned good, the Apache Kid, gives his pal his bandit's scarf to be given in turn by the pal as a present to the girl he loves. The pal (Fred Church), who is flat broke and can't afford to buy his girl (Josephine Hill) a gift, uses the scarf to rob from his own crooked father and of course, the Kid gets blamed. Perrin is a very acceptable and likeable cowboy hero and sorts things out in well under an hour. Bad-guy Bud Osborne plays an ex-partner of Perrin's who goes over a cliff in the final fistfight. Osborne is rather young looking here and has some good scenes as a back-stabbing snake. It's great watching these early circa 1930 sound Westerns, the images of landscape from a changing West that will soon give way to expansion of a rapidly developing Los Angeles.
The second short runs about 15min. and is super cheap. It stars cowboy favorite Wally Wales (future henchman/sidekick Hal Taliaferro) and the film's director Victor Adamson (aka Denver Dixon) as sidekick Blister (I suppose because of his bothersome corns!). He's billed here as Al Mix and is also the father of future schlock director Al Adamson (BRAIN OF BLOOD, DRACULA VS FRANKENSTEIN) who was murdered in the 1990's.
THE ADVENTURES OF TEXAS JACK (1934) looks to have been most likely part of an abandoned serial and although it is not in very good shape is a very interesting example of no-budget Western film making of it's time.
Rossini's William Tell Overture appears here for the first time in a Western, long before THE LONE RANGER made it famous...
