Routine But Pleasant Carey Programmer
21 September 2003 | by bsmith5552See all my reviews

"The Last of the Clintons" is one of a series of mid 30s independent oaters starring Harry Carey. The "Clinton" of the title, for what its worth is the character of Jed Clinton (Victor Potel) who is along for nothing more than sidekick comedy relief.

Carey plays Trigger Carson a detective who infiltrates a gang of rustlers headed by Luke Todd (Tom London) and his chief henchman Pete (Earl Dwire). Carson is working with the town vigilante committee headed by Elkins (Charles "Slim' Whitaker). Elkins has a daughter Edith (Betty Mack) who is in love with Todd's brother Marty (Del Gordon). Carson manages to outsmart the rustlers and get the young lovers together by the end of the picture. The way in which London "gets his" at the film's climax shows a little imagination on the part of the film maker. Also of note is the fact that the usual big gunfight takes place at the beginning of the film rather than at the end.

Carey was always better than his material. His maturity and air of authority raised the level of these little one hour horse operas considerably. Again, he plays a father figure who straightens out a young man about to get himself into trouble.

Not bad for a poverty row quickie.
