THE BORDER LEGION (1930)
The third of five film adaptations of Zane Grey's 1916 novel, the pre-Code 1930 version stars Jack Holt as bandit king Jack Kells, commander of a small army of outlaws who raid and plunder ruthlessly across the Idaho territory. Richard Arlen is out-of-work cowpoke Jim Cleve, who's about to get strung up for a crime he didn't commit until Kells cuts him loose, with Cleve gratefully joining Kells' gang afterward. But Cleve's heart isn't in outlawry; he soon finds it beats for the gang's beautiful new captive, Joan Randall (Fay Wray), whom Kells also covets, precipitating a standoff between Cleve and the man who saved his life. DIR Otto Brower, Edwin H. Knopf; SCR Percy Heath, Edward E. Paramore, Jr., from the novel by Zane Grey. U.S., 1930, b&w, 68 min. NOT RATED
