Editorial Reviews

FLAME OF BARBARY COAST: John Wayne is "Duke," a good-hearted rancher from Montana who comes to San Francisco to collect a debt owed to him by Tito (Joseph Schildkraut), slick owner of a casino. He falls in love with Flaxen (Ann Dvorak), the beautiful saloon singer engaged to Tito! Duke loses his hard-earned bankroll at Tito's casino forcing him to leave town. But not for long! The next time he comes to town, his luck radically changes. In fact, he's so lucky that he almost cleans out Titl's casino. With his winnings, Duke builds a casino across the street from tito, hiring Flaxen to star in his floor show. All goes well until the great San Fransisco earthquake forces Duke, Flaxen and all the residents of the city to regroup and rebuild. William Frawley also stars in this exciting drama featuring "the Duke" at his larger than life finest. SANTA FE STAMPEDE - An old friend of the Mesquiteers strikes gold and plans to give the trio half the claim. but the town's crooked mayor and his ruthless henchmen have their own ideas. Murder follows in their path, and Stony (John Wayne), accused of the crime, faces a lynch mob that wants revenge!

FLAME OF THE BARBARY COAST: The Duke vs. Joseph Schildkraut for the heart of Ann Dvorak and dominance of the San Francisco gambling scene. Wayne is smart and strong, Dvorak is beautiful and unobtainable and Schildkraut is charming and both conniving and dignified. William Frawley provides guidance and laughs as Duke's mentor, Wolf Wiley. This is a classic love triangle/rivalry, the kind that has sustained literature down through the ages.

SANTA FE STAMPEDE: John Wayne, Ray "Crash" Corrigan and Max Terhune made several Republic Westerns where they played a group of friends known as the Three Mesquiteers. This is one of their better outings. Wayne is framed for a murder he did not commit and faces lynching at the hands of an angry mob. (The titular Stampede)Will his friends be able to save him in time? I'm not telling, but you probably know the answer. This is a fun Republic oater with decent action and some funny comic bits by Terhune and his ventriloquist dummy.

A double dose of John Wayne for the price of one is a great idea to me. Flame of the Barbary Coast is a film from Wayne's time at Republic Studios. While it will not replace anyone's favorite Duke film it is a fun time. The plot is not the most original but I recommend this one. Wayne comes to town, losses his bankroll to a crooked casino and then fights back. He opens his own casino and steals the girl (of course there is a girl) from the bad guy. Throw in the San Francisco earthquake and you've got a movie. After all that you get a second feature. Looks like its a bargain.

FLAME OF BARBARY COAST and SANTA FE STAMPEDE are hardly considered the cream of the crop in John Wayne's body of work. One picture is after John Wayne rose to stardom, the other right before. They're both okay viewing, marked as they are by the Duke's distinctive broad-shouldered presence. I purchased this DVD. I ain't complaining.

There's no rivalry like a rivalry over a beautiful woman. When you get to the heart of the plot in John Wayne's turn-of-the-century drama, there sits Ann Dvorak all fine and beautiful. In 1945's FLAME OF BARBARY COAST, easygoing Montana rancher Duke Fergus arrives at San Francisco's Barbary Coast to collect a debt from an influential casino owner and, because of this and that - but mostly because of Flaxen Tarry the enticing dance hall chanteuse (Dvorak) - he ends up establishing his own casino right across the street. Duke Fergus is well on his way to clobbering all competition and getting the girl (having already hired her away from his rival), but then the great San Francisco earthquake strikes, and I guess there's nothing like a natural disaster to bring a man back down to earth.

I enjoyed this movie okay, even though it's nowhere near the Duke's best work. FLAME OF BARBARY COAST is a poor man's remake of SAN FRANCISCO. The production values here are decent but don't match that of the original classic. But I thought that John Wayne and Ann Dvorak are in fine form as the leads, even if they don't have much to work with in terms of script. There's a bit of suspense thrown in regarding Flaxen because you're never quite sure exactly where her allegiance lies. Also, Dvorak never was heralded as a notable singer, and her efforts here won't change anyone's mind.

Both movies were interesting. Life on the Barbary Coast was not a easy one and especially when you throw in an earthquake. San Francisco must have been a ripe roaring town around 1900 and shortly thereafter. The other movie deals with cattle drives and there conplex operation. Both give you glimpses of the "Ole" West and how life was in that day. Enjoyable.
