Beyond the Rio Grande


50m 1930

Brief Synopsis

Having quit their old gang and gone straight, Bert Allen (Jack Perrin) and Joe Kemp (Franklyn Farnum) finally own their own ranch after three years, but Joe robs the Riverton bank of the Green River Dam payroll - using Bert's horse, gun and gloves and leaving behind Bert's hat. Bert escapes across the Mexican border and there falls in love with Betty Burke (Charline Burt), while Bill (Jay Wilsey as Buffalo Bill Jr), Al Mooney (Pete Morrison) and Dick (Edmund Cobb) pursue the $5000 reward for Bert and the robbery loot held by Joe. Bert offers to surrender to the sheriff (Henry Roquemore) if the reward money will be spent on surgery for Betty's blind mother (Emma Tansey).
