    Plot Summary
    While the honest citizens of the Wyoming Territory are working to gain statehood,
    their efforts are hampered by marauding outlaws. Undercover government agents
    John Tipton (John Wayne) and Bridger (Lane Chandler) are sent to Crockett City
    to help ensure an honest statehood election. John and Bridger split up and
    John befriends a trio of settlers harassed by outlaws.
    They are Major Carter (George Hayes), his daughter Janet (Ann Rutherford)
    and their servant Moses (Fred Toones.)
    Carter is coming as the new editor and publisher of the Crockett City Blade,
    and when he announces plans to use the power of the press to fight lawlessness
    and aid the statehood cause, he is warned by Charles Plummer (Harry Woods),
    chairman of the Law and Order Committee, that his is not a healthy stance.
    Bridger is murdered when a wiretapper (Lloyd Ingraham) in Plummer's employ
    intercepts a telegram revealing Bridger's identity as a government agent,
    and Major Carter dies when he is "accidently" shot from a pre-staged fight between two of the gang members.
    A trap set by John captures most of the gang members but he still doesn't know
    who the leader of the gang is; he soon learns when taken prisoner by Plummer and his remaining henchmen.

  • The Lawless Nineties is a 1936 American Western film directed by Joseph Kane,
    starring John Wayne, and Lane Chandler as federal agents in Wyoming.
    The film also starred a 19-year-old Ann Rutherford.


    Duke as agent John Tipton, is kept busy in this oater,
    particularly in the last reel.


    Joseph Kane, a former editor for Paramount,
    directed and empathized action over story


    Like most of Duke's early director's,
    he shot his movies in 6 days

    Quote

    Before you start out in the morning,
    you have to plan what you're going to do...
    so you don't waste anytime


    Duke had deepened the timbre of his voice, and continued to improve
    the delivery of his dialogue.


    Once again the talented actress Anne Rutherford is Duke's love.
    She served as a pleasant foil to Duke's manliness, yet even her
    charm, served as a secondary interest.

    Ann Rutherford said at The Lawless Nineties opening

    Quote

    The cast is kept so busy, that it can find very little time
    for such luxeries as romance and convention



    The films were relentless, and this was no exception,
    Good fun

  • “The Lawless Nineties”

    It’s something I can’t say very often, but here’s a JohnWayne western I had never seen until now. It’s one of the Republic B-Westernsfrom the mid-thirties, and a good one!
