Fun Size Review: ’49 – ’17 (1917)

Ruth Ann Baldwin wrote and directed this western comedy about a forty-niner who wants to relive the good old days. As an added bonus, there’s quite a bit of footage shot in San Diego’s Balboa Park.

While the direction is assured and polished, the screenplay needed one or two more revisions. Still, leading lady Donna Drew is charming and appealing and the film is generally good, breezy entertainment.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Good guys win, bad guys defeated, the forty-niner gets to relive his past.

If it were a dessert it would be: Dessert Nachos. I’m confused but I won’t say no.

Availability: Released on DVD.
