Too Much Chasing
28 December 2007 | by Mike-764See all my reviews

Jim Turner has discovered a rich gold mine that he plans to use its profits to take care of his two granddaughters Jennie and Skeets. Horse Williams who has his eyes on Jennie also has his eyes on Turner's riches and shoots the old timer. Jess Dean, a local cowhand, is framed for the murder by Williams, since he was carrying a sample of the gold (which Turner wanted Dean to give to Jennie). Williams convinces the town of Dean's guilt and he escapes, but Williams organizes his "posse" to go after Dean. The movie lacks originality even for one made in 1924 since the plot I described takes place in the first 12-15 minutes then the next 35 is just Williams' gang chasing after Dean. The film also doesn't have much in the way of great horse-riding stunts characteristic of Yakina Canutt, but the climax of the film with Yak fighting Williams does provide plenty of action and thrills. Rating 5.
