The Sonora Kid (1927)
Love is the star that you are
One of the most unusual scenes ever in an early B-western is that of two knights jousting (see lobby card below). But the concept of knighthood comes early on in this silent film: Tom is reading the story of King Arthur's Court while employed as a cowboy at a ranch. Then the character of Doc Knight (Barney Furey) steps in, a snake oil salesman. The ranch owner, Arthur Butterworth (Jack Richardson)wants his daughter Phyllis (Peggy Montgomery) to marry a millionaire from San Francisco – but unknown to Butterworth, the millionaire obtained his wealth in an unscrupulous fashion. Our hero dons a suit of armor and fights to win the hand of Phyllis. (Motion Picture News, March 1927)
