A Seller's Market with a Gun
30 April 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

In 1947 it had been three years since Jean Arthur had celebrated the end of her contract by running through the studio, screaming in delight. She was still a huge star, so an old Buffalo Bill Junior silent B Western was dusted off, cut down to one reel and recopyrighted because the ingénue was the 1926 Jean Arthur.

That's what it looks like to me. I've seen some western shorts from the era and their plots are simpler. This one has the ranch about to be repossessed, a cattle stampede and Buffalo Bill Junior solving his money problems by taking the cash from the banker at gunpoint and giving him his change and a receipt for the cattle he has just bought. The only possible explanation for Richard Thorpe directing this mess is that it's a cut-down. A very bad one.
