The Reviews for The Lawless Nineties (1936) 720p

Wyoming StatehoodReviewed bybkoganbingVote: 4/10

The year is 1890 and Wyoming would like to be a state, but certain lawless elements want to keep it a territory. There will be a plebiscite to decide the issue and the outlaws are going to win this thing by hook or crook. There's redundancy if I've ever written one.

The Lawless Nineties has John Wayne as a 'government man' one of several sent in to the territory to see the elections are run fair and square. With maybe more than a little leaning on the side of the homesteaders and small ranchers and merchants who want statehood.

There actually is some historical basis for this. In this year, the president of the United States is Republican Benjamin Harrison and he's got a Congress with his party controlling both houses. Because of that six states get admitted in his four years as president, Wyoming being one of them the others being Idaho, Montana, Washington, and North and South Dakota. The idea was very simple, the territories were Republican leaning for the most part and would furnish representation in Congress to keep his party in power.

I'm assuming that the Duke as a 'government man' was working for the Department of Justice and oddly enough the film anticipates by about thirty years the Justice Department performing just such an electoral function that they did in the South after the Voting Rights Act was passed.

It's a novel and interesting premise for a western and another thing I thought was unique was the outlaw's use of early electronic surveillance to find out what the federal government's plans were and take steps to foil them. Of course there is no radio and the use of the telephone was not common yet in the west. We're talking here about the telegraph and Wayne does figure it out.

But sad to say that The Lawless Nineties is spoiled by the use of Etta McDaniel and Fred Toone as some black stereotypes, really, really bad ones. Sadder still because there was no need to bring them in, the racial issue just wasn't germane to the plot.

It's been twenty five years since the end of the Civil War and Toone and McDaniel act like Gabby Hayes and Ann Rutherford as a father and daughter resettled from Virginia still own them. Gabby is far from the grizzled, hairy old cuss we love. He's got a handlebar mustache and a clipped goatee and speaks in cultured upper class Southern tones. Not what we normally get from Gabby.

The action is good in The Lawless Nineties and I only wish that Republic hadn't seen the need to include McDaniel and Toone in the film.

about what you'd expect from a John Wayne B-MovieReviewed byMartinHaferVote: 5/10

This film was a pretty entertaining film and being a B-film, it was over in under one hour. In other words, it accomplished its modest goals just fine. While this means that compared to other, A-films, the movie might seem awfully simplistic, it was simply meant as a second film on a double-bill. These second features were often made by lesser-name studios and featured lower budgets and actors/directors/writers who hadn't yet established themselves in Hollywood or couldn't make the jump to the higher-level films--hence, the name "B-Movie". For years, John Wayne did many Bs and this one is certainly better than most (such as his "Singing Sandy" and "Three Mesquiteers" films). It gets the job done and the acting, for Bs, is very good. By the way, the role of the Major was played by George Hayes--that's "Gabby" Hayes and wow does he look and sound different playing a more serious role!

Cast alone deserves a 12; script and direction another 10Reviewed bymorrisonhimselfVote: 10/10

Marred slightly by rear-screen projection and stock footage, "The Lawless Nineties" still rates very high for its superior cast, starring John Wayne, and script and directing by Joseph Kane.

There is only a little historical accuracy here, but that is irrelevant in this exciting production, made even more exciting by the usual excellent stunt work by the greats Yakima Canutt and Cliff Lyons.

Just one example of superlative acting is provided in a scene where Etta McDaniel is holding a broom, standing at the back of a meeting room. Right next to the spittoon.

One of the meeting attenders turns around to spit, and she watches carefully. And in turn she needs to be watched carefully, she and the spitter.

The expression on her face is priceless.She was a marvelous actress, and part of the famous acting family that included her more famous sister Hattie and her brother Sam.

All up and down the list of players is quality, including the prolific Tom London and the great villain Charles King.

Some other reviewers must not really know much about the history of B Westerns since they kept expressing surprise at the appearance of George W. Hayes as the editor, called usually "Major" Carter but at least once "Colonel" Carter.

His daughter is played by the adorable Ann Rutherford.

There is a good print at YouTube, apparently recorded from a presentation by AMC. I highly recommend "The Lawless Nineties."
