Arizona Days (McGowan, 1928)

Arizona Days (J.P. McGowan, 1928)

A simple yet enjoyable little silent western. The land is drenched in an orange-tinted sepiatone as a man fights cunningly to keep a local cheat from conning his way to free cattle. We’re treated to an intriguing story and some great character interaction (these folks don’t fight from afar; they act as business partners, adversaries, and sometimes even chums depending on the mood). There’s also a cute little love story between the man’s daughter and a new-to-town cowhand. The film is short and doesn’t offer as much from a technical standpoint as most westerns, but it’s much better than the B-western it was advertised as.  7.75/10
