  • Two-Fisted Law is a 1932 American romantic B-Western film directed by D. Ross Lederman
    and starring Tim McCoy and John Wayne.
    The picture also features Walter Brennan, Alice Day, Wheeler Oakman,
    Tully Marshall,
    and Wallace MacDonald.

    The second Tim McCoy film, which was a Columbia relegation for Duke,
    This oater featuring Tim, who in my opinion,
    was the most ridiculous looking cowboy star,
    if ever there was one.
    With over-acting hams like Tim around, Duke couldn't fail!!!
    At least we had Walter Brennan, to show us, how to act!!

    Duke was billed even lower than the first, a lowly 6th!!!
    His screen time was only 5:37, and is only visible
    in 4 scenes! Duke doesn't appear at all, in the last 23 minutes,
    of this 57 minute film.

    His delivery of dialogue, however, was improving.
    Things were getting worse, but they were about to get better.

  • Hi,
    Watched this one for the first time. Agree about McCoy. Duke sure speaks and acts better and owershadowed the leading man. :rolleyes:
    This one is the earliest of Duke movies which I saw.

  • Rating 0/10 would be more like it. Except for that I agree. This is by far the worst John Wayne film I have seen, and it's not because I have to have John Wayne in every scene, because I don't. I usually get a kick out of watching the old b-movies despite their obvious flaws, but this one was just painful to watch. It seemed like 57 hours not 57 minutes.

  • To my opinion Duke's B-movies are much better then others. For example Jene Autry (I always like the music but the plot are always silly and Autry himself very unnatural) and Roy Rodgers. Two Fisted Law was of course McCoy movie, it explains all faults.

  • Hi All

    This is one of the earliest films that John Wayne appeared in that Ive seen.

    It is virtually a case of blink or you will miss him.

    The most amazing thing in this film is seeing Walter Brennan with black hair!!!!
