Some westerns have/will be aired today and tommorow on German RTL Nitro. 1 was quite good. But first this one.

After my entry King of the Sierras (1938) rating 5, I searched for more movies starring Harry Harvey Jr.. I found one very good pic with him and the other boy and as I haven’t found it online I just bought it.

A typical, poor 1940s-1hour-b&w movie. Only some few minutes at the beginning of the movie. They are fighting and rolling on the ground. One boy singing. Not even a close up of the face of the other one. The rest is set around 20 years later when they are grown-up.

And very poor image and sound quality (at least the edition from Alpha Video / DVD title Riders of the Plains. Probably PD. Also starring Al St. John as Fuzzy. At least 2 handsome boys in jeans. DVD is pressed and not a DVDr like many others from them. Plot is quite good.

So rating 2-3 only.

Happy Easter!
