The Silver Horde (1930)
The Silver Horde
Action / Western
Directed by George Archainbaud
Cast: Jean Arthur, Joel McCrea, Evelyn Brent, Louis Wolheim and Raymond Hatton
Boyd Emerson loves the wealthy Mildred Wayland, but so does Boyd’s unscrupulous rival in the Yukon fisheries, Frederick Marsh. The two battle for Mildred’s hand and for control of the thriving fishing business.
Jean Arthur is third billed, and her part is a subsidiary one, playing a ‘pasty-faced namby-pamby’ society dame; the fiancée of Joel McCrea, who is trying to get a salmon cannery up and running in the wilds of Alaska. McCrea is secretly abetted by hooker turned businesswoman Evelyn Brent, while his chances of success are constantly being endangered by a rival operation across the bay.
Actors: Jean Arthur, Raymond Hatton, Joel McCrea
