Editorial Reviews

starring Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams

(1934) Sheriff Simpson, a friend of Buck (Big Boy Williams), is chasing the Juarez Kid. Buck knows the Kid and realizes the sheriff's description is wrong. He also finds one of the deputies to be an outlaw who is posing as the Kid. After a rancher is killed, Buck uses the real Juarez Kid's ranch in an attempt to trap the killer.

Tex Ralph's Westerns #13

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.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Guinn Williams who stood 6' 2" was nicknamed 'Big Boy' by Will Rogers. Before going into movies in 1919, Williams worked on ranches, appeared in rodeos and played pro baseball. Big Boy was also an avid polo player and at one time owned 125 polo ponies. His horsemanship skills helped typecast Guinn and he starred in silent westerns and 1930s programmers (like COWBOY HOLIDAY). In later films such as DODGE CITY (1939) and SANTA FE TRAIL (1943), Williams was reduced to supporting roles. For the remainder of Guinn's screen career, he mostly played cowboy sidekicks.

In "Cowboy Holiday," a large man in Mexican-style clothing who is believed to be the Juarez Kid eludes pursuers and hides in a cave. Williams (as Buck Sawyer) is suspected of being this outlaw even though he knows the "Kid" is much smaller than he.

When the Juarez Kid then kills a rancher who owes him money, Buck goes to the scene and the dead man's daughter, thinking he's the culprit, gets her ranch hands to attack Buck. He's wounded in the arm, but escapes and takes refuge in a cabin, unaware that he's being watched by the actual murderer.

ALPHA VIDEO is a provider of vintage programming that's often unavailable elsewhere. Their prices are fair, but so is transfer quality of some of their offerings. None have undergone restoration, yet this product's rareness and an honest price make it a worthwhile purchase.

First a word about DVD-Rs--
Often, these transfers are of a quality similar to multi-film budget brands. The movies themselves are unrestored and rarely pristine yet still watchable (unless there's an inordinate number of repaired breaks). Extras are non-existent and inclusion of artwork or liner notes varies by manufacturer. These niche companies can provide a valuable outlet for antique movies unavailable anywhere else.
