Telegraph Trail ★½ 1933

Weak Wayne entry about an Army scout who helps some workers complete the first transcontinental wire line. Of course, Wayne ends up getting tough with some Indians. Cheaply made, with most of the action footage lifted from the 1926 silent, “The Red Raiders.” 60m/B VHS, DVD . John Wayne, Marceline Day, Frank McHugh, Otis Harlan, Yakima Canutt, Lafe (Lafayette) McKee; D: Tenny Wright; W: Kurt Kempler.
