The Thundering Herd

Here is the greatest western picture since The Covered Wagon and if anything it is as great, if not greater, than that western epic, at least from the standpoint of thrills. The credit for the wallop goes to the director, William K. Howard. Howard's composition stands out. He has achieved groupings and scenes that rival the best that that great artist of the west, Frederic Remington, has done.

Heading the cast are Jack Holt, Lois Wilson, Noah Beery and Raymond Hatton. This quartet stand out wonderfully well in their characterizations. But it isn’t the cast, the director, the story or the photography that makes The Thundering Herd a truly great picture. It is the thrills.
