Set in the late 1890s and featuring Warner Baxter in his Oscar winning role as the Cisco Kid, IN OLD ARIZONA is oddly entertaining. One of the first all-talking movies, its primitive sound recording techniques make it a pretty static `action' western. Although some scenes were shot outdoors - impressively catching the actors' voices without boom mikes showing at the top of the screen - most of the action takes place indoors, if action we can call it, while the actors sit real close to each other and talk loud and slow in interminable dialogues. Missing is the normal musical scoring and under-scoring, although many scenes open and close with picturesque cowboys, pianists, and caballeros singing or strumming an old-timey standard. This odd entertainment will appeal to you if you want to see how films went about figuring out what to do now that they finally had a sound track.

IN OLD ARIZONA is taken from O. Henry's short story "The Caballero's Way." It's a story that's easy to find with a simple internet search and is worth the hunt. The movie is more or less faithful to the source: the Cisco Kid loves Tonia (Dorothy Burgess) who, O. Henry tells us, was `half Carmen, half Madonna, and the rest...let us say, was humming-bird.' The movie Tonia is quite a bit more Carmen than Madonna, though, and it's not long before her roving eyes fall upon calvary Sgt. Mickey Dunn (Edmund Lowe), a bowery boy, transplanted to the old west, who is mesmerized equally by the humming-bird charms of Tonia and the sizable bounty offered for the Cisco Kid, dead or alive. Not quite the antagonist or motivation envisioned by O. Henry, but close enough for the purposes of this movie. With its simple but strong plot in place, IN OLD ARIZONA shows us how this deadly love triangle plays out.

Several years ago I found a source for In Old Arizona on VHS. It was a copy of a copy of a......... well , you get the idea.

It was in pretty poor shape. But, it was also the only resource

I could find for this movie.

This movie is not one of Warner Baxter's best movies. But, it is

historically interesting as being the very first talking western and the first appearance of the Cisco Kid. And he's a bad guy in this one too. And overall, I have to give it five stars for the fact that it was new technology and also interesting to see actors that came from the silent era learning to adapt to speaking a part as well as acting it. I am greatful to Fox for taking this movie out of mothballs and restoring it. It is not perfect but, considering the version I had previously, it is pretty near it. Well worth adding to a movie collector's collection.

"In Old Arizona" is an Oscar winning 1929 black and white film; the first western talkie and the first talkie shot on an outdoors location. It was the third film featuring The Cisco Kid who first appeared in 1914 ("The Caballero's Way") and he went on to a long career with dozens of films, played by Cesar Romero (1941), Duncan Renaldo (1945-50), Gilbert Roland (1946-7), and Jimmy Smits (1994). Renaldo played him in the TV series (1950-56).

In the original O'Henry short story, the Cisco Kid had far more darker facets to his personality, but it was lightened considerably for the big screen, and over the years turned more comical than dramatic .

Warner Baxter (1889-1951) plays Cisco. Baxter was a big star in the 20s. After "In Old Arizona" he went on to star in "Prisoner of Shark island" (1936) and "Kidnapped" (1938) and his career fizzled after that.

Beautiful Dorothy Burgess (1907-61) plays Cisco's love interest in her film debut. She had a brief busy career in the early 30s, but various love affairs and a manslaughter charge squashed her box office appeal.

Square jawed Edmund Lowe (1890-1971) was a leading star in the silent era, and made the transition in the 30s with films like "Chandu the Magician" (1932) and "Dinner at Eight" (1933).

Raoul Walsh (1887-1980) was originally scheduled to direct and star, but an accident with a jack rabbit caused him to lose his eye, and Warner Baxter got his part.

this is probably the highest ranking anyone will ever give this film, but i genuinely enjoyed it. warner baxter creates the role of the cisco kid, adapted from an o. henry short story, and it owes more to o. henry than to zane grey; the dialog is punctuated with tough "noo yawk" street lingo of a century ago, and the denouement is pure irony. and incidentally, there is a hilarious exchange between the two lead cowboys where they compare the size of their respective guns. is this for everyone? by no means. but if you are a westerns buff, and are willing to take a look into a different time and a different mindset, give this a try.
