The Thundering Herd (1933)
He followed a trail of blazing action across the prairies!
The Thundering Herd – a Pre-Code Western has a rather amazing cast of Western Icons: Randolph Scott, Judith Allen, Buster Crabbe,
Noah Beery, Sr. and Harry Carey.
The film is now in the public domain and also known as Buffalo Stampede.
Buffalo Stampede (1950)
As Big … and Great as the Wide … Wild West!
Buffalo Stampede can be watched on You Tube
in watchable 480 resolution – 57:15 long.
Sprague (Harry Carey) and Jett (Noah Beery)and their men are buffalo hunters. Doan (Randolph Scott) is with Sprague and is looking for Jett who tried to kill him and is holding his girlfriend Milly (Judith Allen) hostage. Jett’s is also stealing Sprague’s furs. Meanwhile, Indians are attacking the buffalo hunters.
There are very few reviews on The Thundering Herd. I watched it on You Tube and I’d give it a 6 out of 10 at best. It’s climax is unusual and not entirely satisfying in how the badguy is dispatched.
Yet the Cast is interesting and it is a Talky.
