The Painted Desert (1931)

An American western directed by Howard Higgin and Bert Gilroy, starring William Boyd, Helen Twelvetrees and Clark Gable.
Two cowboys find a baby in the desert and begin a lifelong feud by aruing over the child's name and caretaker. Years later, the baby has grown to a man and the feud is still on.
This was prehistoric, boring and poorly made. The acting was horrid, with most folks "announcing" their lines. The plot was dull and not clearly communicated. I won't talk crap about the audio and video because of the early date, but let's just say I did not find them amusing. The lack of non-diagetic music also hampered enjoyment of this film. I rate it shit because I turned it off at 42 minutes.
