The Medicine Man (1930)

An American drama directed by Scott Pembroke, starring Jack Benny.
The son and daughter of an abusive shopkeeper escape his clutches with the help of a man from a travelling show.
This sounded like it was recorded inside a metal trash can and looked worse. There were editing mistakes, video artifacts, dead air hiss and crackling pops. The plot was extremely simplistic with minimal characters of very little depth. Although a technical disaster, it did not hurt to watch quite as much as some films with better production. The card game trickery, boy looking for busted boxes of candy and happy ending were high points if there were any. I'll be really nice and rate it poor.
