Movie Reviews

"A Western Extravaganza"
The Pea Pod Kid | OR, USA | 05/01/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This unusual western is filled with not only the regular horse and six-shooters,but a fantastic sword fight between Bob Steele and the badie,Fred Cavins. A young George "Gabby" Hayes plays Bob's sidekick and the end is played out with Bob hopping into his race car and chasing down the escaping bad guy. Very unusual, but as a western? Well, maybe not that great,but worth it if only for the sword fight which shows some real talent on Bob's part."

"Monogram Pictures presents "BREED OF THE BORDER" (1 March 1933) (58 mins/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- Bob Steele was an American actor --- He was born Robert Adrian Bradbury in 1907 in Portland, Oregon, into a vaudeville family --- Bob's career began to take off for good in 1927, when he was hired by production company Film Booking Offices of America (FBO) to star in a series of Westerns. Bob--who was rechristened Bob Steele at FBO--soon made a name for himself, and in the late 1920s, 1930s and 1940s starred in B-Westerns for almost every minor film studio, including Monogram, Supreme, Tiffany, Syndicate, Republic (including several films of the Three Mesquiteers series) and Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC) (including the initial films of their "Billy the Kid" series)

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, that "new medium" television had many hours to fill and few dollars to fill them --- They re-discovered the B-Western, still a popular mainstay of Saturday afternoon matinees and many cowboy stars thrilled a new audience --- Taking advantage of this rebirth in popularity, publishers brought to the marketplace comic books featuring these western heroes of "Bob Steele" Westerns --- These bimonthly issues were copyrighted in February and April of 1950 by Fawcet Publications --- His career which included nearly 200 feature films, serials and TV appearances --- Steele in his twilight years at the age 59 when he got the part of the cantankerous "Trooper Duffy", in the western comedy series "F Troop" (1965), who at the drop of a hat would give his rendition of fighting "shoulder to shoulder with Davy Crockett at the Alamo" --- Steele retired from the screen in 1973 --- Bob's long career, spanning more than 50 years came to an end in 1988 when he passed away.

Under the production staff of:
Robert North Bradbury - Director
Trem Carr - Producer
Paul Malvern - Producer
Harry O. Dean - Screenwriter
Harry L. Fraser - Screenwriter
Faxon Dean - Cinematographer

Our story line and plot, our hero 'Speed' Brent (Bob Steele) drives Joe (Ernie Adams) to the border where his men slug Brent, and he shoots Judge Stafford (John Elliott) and takes his bonds --- Brent's old friend Chuck Wiggines (George 'Gabby' Hayes) arrives and the two head out to find the gang and recover the bonds --- Check out our.hero Bob Steele as he exhibits his fencing abilities opposite Mike Cavins (Fred Cavens), the Hollywood fencing master who here plays one of villain Ernie Adams' internationally flavored henchmen --- They just don't make 'em like this anymore.

Copeland (author of "Trail Talk"), Rhonda Lemons (Empire Publishing Inc) and Bob Nareau (author of "The Real Bob Steele") as they have rekindled my interest once again for B-Westerns and Serials --- If you're into the memories of B-Westerns with high drama, this is the one you've been anxiously waiting for --- please stand up and take a bow --- all my heroes have been cowboys!
