Paroled to Die (1938)

An American western directed by Sam Newfield.
A cowboy is framed for a bank robbery by a politician and his gang of outlaws.
This was a really old style film. The total lack of music was definitely a negative element, with much of the audio being horse hoof sound effects. The plot was not clearly communicated and the characters were difficult to identify and keep track of. There was one shot that I liked, a closeup of the cowboy putting a bandana in his pocket. It was the only point in which something was being clearly communicated. Pacing was quick with the 54 minute duration, but it failed to hold my attention for even that short amount of time. I have to rate this bad because it was not worth watching.
