When wandering cowboy Bob Crandall (Rex Lease) hits a mining
town in search of a friend, he is met with blank faces and some shady goings-on.
His search soon leads him to a gang of greedy claim-jumpers operating in the
rich silver-mining territory. Crandall wins back his friendís claim but loses
his heart to Molly Welburn (Mary Russell) , an attractive
outlaw seeking to avenge her fatherís murder..
Running Time: 58 Minutes
"Rex Lease is at his romantic best in this investigative western
in which a cowboy responds to a miner friendís urgent call only to find that
that he has vanished without trace. The plot unfolds steadily as new characters
join the fray. Mary Russell plays the uncommon role of a female bandit pretty
well, while doubling wonderfully as a law-abiding citizen. However, what really
takes one by surprise is the revelation of the true identity of Loony, a local
tramp whom nobody takes seriously.
Tom London has done a marvelous job and his portrayal of a dimwit
is very realistic. Rin Tin Tin the famous canine hero of early westerns provides
some fascinating moments with his clever antics. This could well have been
another run-of-the-mill western had it not been for a thrilling plot, insightful
direction and superb performances by the entire cast. Experience this
outstanding western thriller from A2ZCDS, which has you guessing about the
outcome till the end."
"Iím a sucker for the Ďcowboy with a causeí theme, and this one (The Silver
Trail) had me hogtied from the very outset. Rex Leaseís portrayal of Bob
Crandall could have come straight out of a Oliver Strange novel about ĎSuddení.
Iím going to watch this timeless classic again when my spirits need a major
pick-me-up, now that I have it on DVD"
Clive J. Farrell
"Mary Russell absolutely bewitches, and
Rex Lease wears his character of a conscientious trail-rider like a comfortable
pair of cowboy boots. Itís good to see the ease and purpose with which ĎThe
Silver Trailí canters along, and the story from this old feature film is one you
can tell your kids on rained-out nights. Gimme more, pardner."
