Editorial Reviews

Pueblo Terror (1931, B&W): Bill Sommers (Buffalo Bill Jr.) returns from the Army to find that his Paradise Valley Ranch is being forced out-of-business. Greedy John Weston is cutting off the ranchers' water supplies, then buying up the bankrupt properties for a song. When Bill's investigation get's close to the truth, Weston has him arrested on trumped-up murder charges. Bill must find a a way to escape and put an end to the insidious land grab.

The popularity of western movies during the 1920s and 1930s allowed a legion of production companies to survive by cranking out micro-budgeted films in virtually unlimited numbers. Pueblo Terror, a crude but compelling early talkie, was one of the first sound horse operas to star Missouri-born Jay Wilsey, a lanky cowboy who entered films in 1924 as Buffalo Bill Jr.

Starring Buffalo Bill Jr., Art Mix, Yakima Canutt, Jack Harvey; Directed by Alvin J. Neitz.

The Whirlwind Rider (1933, B&W): Rodeo champion Bill Reed offers to donate his next prize to help prevent beautiful Alice Baldwin from losing her ranch. But her backstabbing "friend" Frank Kellogg is determined to take possession the valuable property himself. Kellogg decides to fix the competition by having his henchman prevent Bill from riding - by any means necessary.

There's evidence to suggest that this incredibly rare western never received a wide theatrical release. It was one of hundreds of such pictures that survive today only because they were made available to rental libraries and early TV stations desperate for programming before the major studios licensed their films. Buffalo Bill Jr. is his usual stolid self and George Chesebro suitably despicable as the lecherous villain.

Starring Buffalo Bill Jr., Genee Boutell, George Chesebro, Jack Long; Directed by R. J. Renroh (Robert J. Horner).

By Richard J. Oravitz on March 2, 2012
I like Buffalo Bill Jr.
He looks good, not too handsome, stands tall, wears chaps and pretty much does his own riding, fighting and stunting. In super-cheapie productions like these you really had to be the whole show. His line delivery is awful. He often flubs his lines, but cutting him some slack, so do many of the others in this one-take-only double bill. Still, Jay Wilsey, aka Buffalo Bill Jr., has a habit of reading his lines off cue sheets just off the side of camera range. And still yet, he manages that same quiet, shy charm that made Ken Maynard so enduring to his fans.

To put it bluntly, these two movies are pretty bad. They're poorly acted, directed and photographed. And the ALPHA prints are choppy/splicy early on for both features, but settle in and become stable for most of the running times. Both features are very watchable and maintain a sort of home movie quality that adds much to their charm and likeability.

I will not go into plot details for either PUEBLO TERROR or WHIRLWIND RIDER, other than Yak Canutt is the lead heavy in one and the equally great George Chesebro is the main villain in the other. If you watch these things, it's not for the plot anyway. All you need to know is that these are two (many considered lost) examples of LOW-budget B-Western film making during that early 1930's sound period, before background music, before singing cowboys. These are cowboy movies of some historical importance. They're fun to watch and are a kind of time trip back to the 1930's. No expensive town sets were built here. They filmed around what was standing and made it fit in.

Great stuff, love it.
