Editorial Reviews

starring John Wayne

(1934) The Marshall sends Westin (John Wayne) to find out who's killing rodeo riders about to win money. The gang doing it prepares the same fate for John.

Tex Ralph's Westerns #28

B-Westerns strongly evoked traditional American values - honesty, courage, hard work, fair play, and that a good little man can always kick the butt of a bad big man.

In the darkness of the theater and afterwards, out in the Saturday afternoon sunlight playing cowboys and Indians, long before political correctness changed the name of our favorite boyhood game, we knew we were right and lived in the greatest land of all... because Gene and Roy and Hoppy and all our other heroes said so and showed us how to live a good moral life by riding hard, drawing fast, and never, EVER stealing a horse or rustling a cow.

"Tex Ralph's Westerns" is a weekly TV show on cable channel 20, URTV, in Asheville, North Carolina. Author Ralph Roberts chooses exciting B-Westerns and hosts each episode. Currently there are 53 movies in this series, all available on DVD.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Customer Reviews

John Wayne and Polly Young are brilliant!
J. Smith
In 1934 alone, when this film was made, Wayne made 9 films, all of them westerns.
Dr. James Gardner
If you haven't seen the footage elsewhere, it won't matter at all to you.

I quite enjoyed The Man From Utah (1934), but it is a rather peculiar old western. John Wayne plays John Weston, a stranger who rides into town, saves the local marshal's life in the aftermath of a bank robbery, and soon finds himself entering a rodeo as an undercover detective of sorts. It seems that the rodeo organizer's boys keep winning all the prize money at each event, while outsider entrants who have a chance to win keep getting "snakebit," literally. It's up to The Duke to infiltrate the gang, figure out how they operate, and save the day. There is a good bit of rodeo action, but a significant portion of it comes from stock footage used in a good number of other early films; this is clearly a mark against The Man From Utah, but it is an understandable way to make a cheap movie back in depression-marked 1934. If you haven't seen the footage elsewhere, it won't matter at all to you. What really distinguishes this film is the music. The movie opens with John Wayne riding into town strumming a guitar and singing; I believe this is stock footage of someone other than The Duke, though. What really got me, though, was the insertion at times, usually during a chase scene, of unusually prominent music consisting mainly of organs and horns (at least, that's what it sounded like to me). I suppose this was done to add tension or excitement to important parts of the film, but the sound of quasi-classical music coming from out of nowhere during an old western really struck me as quite odd. The Man From Utah does have its problems, but it still features John Wayne playing the hero as only he can; this and the presence of the always entertaining Gabby Hayes make this an entertaining old western that all fans of The Duke should enjoy.

The Man From Utah, 1934 film

The story starts with a man on a white horse singing and strumming a guitar. [No case or bg for it?] A sign asks for men to fight a fire in a national forest. But the Marshal says the offer has ended. There is gunshots from three men who leave the "Wells Fargo Express Company", the Marshal shoots at them. [No warnings?] One of the robbers climbs a roof, then falls to the ground. The stranger fires to halt the other robbers, then races away. [Was that a stunt double? Was a rope used to trip the white horse?] The Marshal has a job for him: the Dalton Valley Rodeo. Is this a rigged contest? Spike, the gang leader, plans on more big job. They will place an agent on the stagecoach so she provides information. The Marshal sends John Watson on his way.

Miss Carter returns for the big round-up. Another woman enters this stagecoach. She waves a handkerchief. Four men race after the stagecoach shooting at it. Weston knocks off the last riders to stop the robbery attempt. Spike plans to take care of Weston. Judge Carter wants the Rodeo to be on the level. People invested all their money in the Rodeo in hopes of bringing prosperity to the valley. [A reference to the Great Depression?] Judge Carter offers the job of Deputy Sheriff to Weston, but he refuses. "I think he's nice." The movie shows scenes of a real rodeo from a big town. Native Americans walk and ride as part of the parade. [Are those feathered bonnets authentic?] Rodeos celebrate the work activities used in cattle ranching; they were not show business. The trick roping looks easy. "Roman" riding is modern. "The Man from Utah" sets a new record! Weston is told that girl from the stagecoach is part of that gang. There is a stagecoach race. Weston goes off with that stagecoach girl.
