Fighting Caravans (1931)

Gary Cooper, Lili Damita
Otto Brower, David Burton
Clint Belmet (Cooper) is a frontier scout with his hands full in this 1931 Paramount Pictures version of Zane Grey's novel. He's helping guide a wagon train across the country, fighting off various attacks on the way, and falling for his lovely Felice (Lily Damita). Belmet's grizzled companions think he should leave the woman alone, but it gets lonely out on the trail, and Felice's charms are hard to resist. Featuring such notable character actors of the period as Ernest Torrence, Tully Marshall, and Fred Kolher, this vintage Hollywood Western still packs a wallop! (BW)
