Fun Size Review: Beyond the Border (1925)

Harry Carey is a soft-hearted sheriff who switches identities with an incarcerated criminal so that said criminal’s pretty sister (Mildred Harris, yay!) will not know of her brother’s disgrace. Before you can say “Luke and Leia” poor Harry has fallen for his “sister” and all sorts of complications follow.

Light as a feather and incredibly droll, the western comedy is perfect for viewers who don’t usually cotton to the west. And western fans will find lots to love as well. It’s really a win-win, a perfect showcase for Harris and Carey and one of my favorite hidden treasures.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
Carey saves the brother when his old gang tries to kill him. All is revealed to Mildred Harris and romance ensues. Awww.

If it were a dessert it would be: Sugared Doughnut Holes. They don’t look fancy but just try to stop at one.

Availability: Released on DVD.

  1. This sounds like a real charmer. (I took a peek at your full review.) I’ll have to order the DVD. Thanks, Fritzi.
