The Classic Western

Amos Lassen

“Wild West Days”, a classic Western serial from 1037 now available on disc for the first time. It is an action-packed serial  that presents the dangers, hardships, and glorious triumphs of the early western pioneers.

Kentucky Wade and his two buddies ride to help a couple who are being threatened by outlaws. They keep busy fighting their way across the plains and mountains to battle a tribe of Indians led by Red Hatchet. They also contend with false reports of a strike, which starts a gold rush and exciting action.  It is made up of thirteen chapters.

Rancher Larry Munro (Frank McGlynn Jr.) is one of the few holdouts against the rustlers, claim-jumpers, and gun-runners that have been driving honest settlers from the Paradise Valley area. He discovers platinum on his ranch and becomes the prime target of the Secret Seven, the group of supposedly-respectable citizens that are behind the outlaw reign of terror in the Valley. Munro is kidnapped by the Seven’s henchmen, who try to make him divulge the location of his platinum strike–but, fortunately for him and for his sister Lucy (Lynn Gilbert), four old friends of his show up for a visit and quickly join battle against the Seven. This quartet is made up of of Kentucky Wade (Johnny Mack Brown), Trigger (Bob Kortman), Mike Morales (Frank Yaconelli), and Dude (George Shelley). Between them, they manage to rescue Larry, defeat the outlaws and Indians that serve the Secret Seven, and unmask the Seven’s leader–newspaper editor Matt Keeler (Russell Simpson), ostensibly one of the area’s staunchest advocates of law and order.
