Gun Smoke ★★ 1931

A gang of big city thugs high-tails it west when they're about to get busted for murder and robbery. They land in a small western town in Idaho, where their fancy suits and brim hats get them quickly mistaken for a different type of gang—one with big bucks who will invest in the city. It doesn't take the city boys long to figure out that they can take this rinky-dink town, and soon reinforcements are arriving by train to help them. But one smart cowboy had them pegged for trouble from the get-go. 71m/B VHS . Richard Arlen, Mary Brian, William Boyd, Eugene Pallette, Charles Winninger, Louise Fazenda, Brooks Benedict; D: Edward Sloman; W: Grover Jones.
