1934 - The Star Packer

1934 - The Star Packer

1934 brings us back to the American West with Robert N. Bradbury’s The Star Packer. This low-budget, “indie” production was an early vehicle for star John Wayne, a B-movie actor at the time. We talk about on-set horse violence and how animal cruelty laws have evolved, take a quick detour into Pony Express talk, and get to the bottom of what “star packer” actually means.
