    Plot Summary
    Imprisoned for a murder he did not commit, John Brant escapes and ends up out west where,
    after giving the local lawmen the slip, he joins up with an outlaw gang.
    Brant finds out that 'Jones', one of the outlaws he has become friends with,
    committed the murder that Brant was sent up for, but has no knowledge that anyone
    was ever put in jail for his crime. Willing to forgive and forget,
    Brant doesn't realize that 'Jones' has not only fallen for the same pretty shopgirl Brant has,
    but begins to suspect that Brant is not truly an outlaw.
    Summary written by Doug Sederberg

    John Brant escapes jail after being wrongly accused of murder then joins a gang

  • Sagebrush Trail is a 1933 American modern day Western film with locations
    filmed at Bronson Canyon starring John Wayne and featuring Lane Chandler and Yakima Canutt.
    It was the second Lone Star Productions film released by Monogram Pictures.

    I am biased towards, these Lone Star films.
    I enjoy all of them, for all their whirlwind, few days, low budget filming,
    they are a joy, and fun to watch.
    It is great to see Duke maturing in his career, and by the end of the series,
    his cadence is lower, and more mature.

    Throughout this series there were some fine character actors,
    and this one, is no exception, with Nancy Shubert, Lane Chandler, Yakima Canutt
    and Earl Dwire, adding their professional touch.

  • Hi all,
    I like this film too. I also enjoy all Lone star pictures (that I saw of course), but this one is one of the favorites. Only I don't know what the word sagebrush means/
    Senta :rolleyes:

    [after eluding the sheriff by swimming underwater, John emerges on the far side of the lake at the feet of a tall gunslinger]
    John Brant: Well, I guess you got me.
    Joseph Conlon: [snorts] Come on out, stranger. I ain't the law. You're a pretty smart hombre and you got plenty of nerve.
    It strikes me that the boss could use somebody like you. What's your name?
    [John glares at him]
    Joseph Conlon: Smith, ain't it. That's the handle most of you fast travelers use. Aw, it's as good a name as any. Mine's Jones!
    [they shake hands]
    Joseph Conlon: Say, you're pretty near all in, ain't ya. Better come up with me to the hideout and meet the Big Chief.
    We're short a coupla hands.

  • The first poster here is like the one in Keith's first post in this thread; the second one is the same poster, but the coloring is a little brighter, and then the third one is a 1939 re-release poster.

  • Another nice Lone Star movie! - I liked the story about this friendship between the Duke and the outlaw. I watched two versions of the movie right now: a beautiful remastered black and white version with fine new German dubbing and a colorized version with the old bad German dubbing...
    The quality of the picture and the dubbing of these old John Wayne movies released on DVD in Germany were real bad during the last years!
