Editorial Reviews

(1936, Supreme) Bob Steele, Frances Grant, Karl Hackett, William French, Earl Dwire. A little different than the usual Steele western, and quite good, too. Bob plays a Cavalry officer who comes to the aid of a blind southerner. Later, he heads west to stave off an attempt by Hackett’s rebels to set up an independent state. Released by Republic.

Boomers know the star of CAVALRY, Bob Steele for his portrayal of shaggy gray-haired and mustachioed Trooper Duffy on TV's F TROOP.

Mr. Steele was an unusual leading man. Not handsome, due to a Durante-like nose and enormous protruding ears, and with a somewhat stilted delivery, he nonetheless starred in well over 100 silent and sound westerns. Outside the genre, Steele is best remembered as Curley in Lewis Milestone's OF MICE AND MEN (1939).

CAVALRY is an interesting contradiction in cinematic production terms. Clearly a 'B' grade REPUBLIC picture, especially based on acting (Hal Price is downright awful as the story's villain, while Budd Buster's a stand-out for naturalism), yet it's obvious that good money was spent here on costumes, sets and matériel.

The wagon train sequence is particularly outstanding. We first see this train in a longshot, strung out along a ridge. Its impressive length is most apparent, perhaps two dozen Conestogas. Attention to equipage detail makes being among these travelers quite believable. An Indian attack upon their encircled caravan with a cavalry rescue is now a bit cliché, but it's still effective.

Politically correct folks may decry the depiction of liberated plantation slaves and their "what I gwine ta do now?" dialect, yet there's authenticity to the scene where now homeless Southern landowners head west, leaving tearful former house servants behind who reverentially sing a harmonized dirge, "Massa's Gone Away.

Format: DVD
Republic Pictures presents "CAVALRY" (5 October 1936) (61 mins/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Bob Steele was an American actor --- He was born Robert Adrian Bradbury in 1907 in Portland, Oregon, into a vaudeville family --- Bob's career began to take off for good in 1927, when he was hired by production company Film Booking Offices of America (FBO) to star in a series of Westerns. Bob--who was rechristened Bob Steele at FBO--soon made a name for himself, and in the late 1920s, 1930s and 1940s starred in B-Westerns for almost every minor film studio, including Monogram, Supreme, Tiffany, Syndicate, Republic (including several films of the Three Mesquiteers series) and Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC) (including the initial films of their "Billy the Kid" series)

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, that "new medium" television had many hours to fill and few dollars to fill them --- They re-discovered the B-Western, still a popular mainstay of Saturday afternoon matinees and many cowboy stars thrilled a new audience --- Taking advantage of this rebirth in popularity, publishers brought to the marketplace comic books featuring these western heroes of "Bob Steele" Westerns --- These bimonthly issues were copyrighted in February and April of 1950 by Fawcet Publications --- His career which included nearly 200 feature films, serials and TV appearances --- Steele in his twilight years at the age 59 when he got the part of the cantankerous "Trooper Duffy", in the western comedy series "F Troop" (1965), who at the drop of a hat would give his rendition of fighting "shoulder to shoulder with Davy Crockett at the Alamo" --- Steele retired from the screen in 1973 --- Bob's long career, spanning more than 50 years came to an end in 1988 when he passed away.
