Very good John Wayne western.
Patricia H. Barker
Monogram churned out films by the month, usually in the summer, with little attention to detail or character development.
Dr. James Gardner
Has a little cut and paste feel, but for a movie that's as old as I am (70) I can cut it a little slack.

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.

If you're out to see everything John Wayne ever appeared in, Amazon Prime makes the price right… free. If seeing a boyish Duke appear to play a guitar and sing while riding a zig-zag course on a jerkily moving horse sounds good, this is for you. At 81, this movie is more cinematic artifact than entertainment. Trying to imagine? Think kiddy fare from the era of prohibition.

This is a great early John Wayne movie and for the JW buffs it will be just great. It is of course not like modern movies where everything is so grey but in this movie it is black and white. The good are good and the bad are bad.

Very enjoyable for an early western. Plot not too bad and video contains clips from early rodeos. Has a little cut and paste feel, but for a movie that's as old as I am (70) I can cut it a little slack.
