The Spoilers

BBB

(out of 5)


Average adaptation of Rex Beach’s novel (one of five filmed versions, though you’ll be hard-pressed to find any of the other ones) features as a man who strikes gold in a turn-of-the-century mining town in the Old West, only to have to protect it from evil dudes who plan on stealing it. What the bad guys don’t realize is, he’s got saloon-gal  on his side. Rich characters, but it’s not all that memorable.
