The End Is Not Yet
22 September 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

The Last of the Clintons isn't Harry Carey, but Victor Potel, the sharp-shooting old codger who helps Harry put away some cattle rustler and help young lovers Del Gordon and Betty Mack get together. Gordon is the brother of Tom London, who's been stealing beeves, but Gordon is an honest young idiot, and so is Miss Mack, whom Harry excuses because she's a woman.

There are some issues with the timing in this B western, as you can expect when Harry Fraser is the director, but Carey, Potel and Miss Mack do well with their line readings, and there's a rattlesnake on the loose for the final thrill of the movie. This appears to have been the first movie broadcast by the BBC, on 23 August 1937. While not the best of B westerns, it's always fun to watch Carey and listen to his slow, deliberate dialogue.
