"Both films on this ALPHA dvd HONOR OF THE MOUNTED (1932) and SILENT VALLEY (1935) are presented with nice clear prints, SILENT VALLEY the better of the two. This offers the viewer a good example of Tyler's starring era in the 1930's, when he was at the peak of his career as a leading man in sound B-Westerns.
In HONOR OF THE MOUNTED, Tyler plays mountie Tom Halliday, suspiciously found at the scene of a murder (it looked like a case of self defense to me) with the murder weapon in his hand. He's given six months to find the real killer and as the climate moves from winter to summer Tom moves from Canada into the USA, so he must be nearing the end of his line. Posing as a fur trapper Tom soon (or finally) catches up with the culprit and solves the case. Usually bad guys, both Earl (billed here as William) Dwire and Charlie King wind up on the good side of the law for once, Dwire actually as a deputy!!!
SILENT VALLEY has sheriff Tom making little progress against a cattle rustling gang headed by smoothie Al Bridge. Slim Whitaker is appointed as a deputy to help Tom when in reality he's a gunfighter/killer cronie of Bridge's.
Charlie King is the lead henchman, just how we like him cast, and winds up dead as usual. Wally Wales is also on hand as the troubled brother of Tom's girlfriend, in with the gang, but coming to his senses, just in enough time not to be killed off, as is so often the case.
So here's a nicely packaged Tom Tyler 2-fer of pretty good Westerns, both decent prints, and a great way to pass a snowy afternoon, which is what I just did."
