Open Range Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Paramount Pictures used the Zane Grey adaptation Open Range as a showcase for its newest western star (and potential [[Performer~P223908~Gary Cooper~garycooper]] replacement) [[Performer~P134174~Lane Chandler~junechandler]]. Teamed with winsome [[Performer~P8685~Betty Bronson~bettybronson]], who three years earlier had starred in Paramount's [[Feature~V72251~Peter Pan~peterpan]], Chandler plays an itinerant cowboy who is falsely accused of rustling. For the sake of his sweetheart Bronson, our hero takes it upon himself to track down the real culprits, an outlaw gang headed by half-breed [[Performer~P38957~Fred Kohler Sr~fredkohler]]. Chandler's odyssey takes him to the Indian encampment where Kohler is hiding, leading to a spectacular battle between cowboys and Indians. The story is resolved when Chandler stampedes the cattle stolen by Kohler, dispersing the Indians and saving the settlers from destruction; as a coda, he rescues Bronson and her family from a blazing farmhouse. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
