MCMXXXIX XLV: Allegheny Uprising

Allegheny Uprising. William A. Seiter. 1939.


This seems… like an in-between western? I mean, it’s certainly not like one of those cheap, cheerful earlier western serials, and it’s not like one of those later, epic westerns?

The people look kinda… gritty (almost all of them have torn clothes and greasy hair), but the repartee is very bright?

It’s very odd.

The previous scene was a jolly tavern scene, and this one is about Native Americans killing and scalping this woman’s children.

Yes, that’s John Wayne.

This is pretty good?

It is a very entertaining movie.
