In 1775, Daniel Boone settles Kentucky, despite menacing Indians and renegade whites.
George O'Brien made for a slightly pudgy Danel Boone in this pioneer story - and he does a reasonable job, too. Indeed, the whole adventurous spirit is quite well captured as he settles in "Kain-Tuck-Ee" and faces the trials of encroaching Indians - led by double-dealing white man John Carradine, as well as an attempt by the new Virginian government to steal their well earned property. It lolls along without much incident until the last ten minutes when it comes to quite an exciting conclusion. Technically, it's a bit all over the place - the editing is particularly ropey; but the whole thing has some oomph that keeps it watchable even now, 85 years later.
