Overview

John Wayne goes up against a nasty vice lord in this, his second Western under the new Republic Pictures banner. Hired against his father's wishes to lead a wagon train, John Dawson (Wayne) at first battles then befriends the outlaw Kit (Al Bridge) and his gang, whom he supplies with food. The friendship comes in handy back in Frontier, OK, where Ace Holmes (Warner P. Richmond) has been terrorizing the citizenry in general and John's father, Milt (Sam Flint), in particular. When the latter is killed, John takes on the responsibility of sheriff, deputizes Kit and his men, and together they clean up the town. Filmed at Lone Pine, CA, and using plenty of stock footage from Ken Maynard's silent era The Red Raiders (1927), The New Frontier was directed by editor Carl Pierson.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Although assembled by the identical crew that had filmed John Wayne's previous Monogram/Lone Star Westerns, The New Frontier does benefit from a somewhat larger budget courtesy of Republic's Herbert Yates. That said, the Monogram town set remains the same and Wayne is still not "The Duke" of later super-stardom but a fairly competent young player still finding his way in Hollywood. Yakima Canutt's stunt work is well in evidence as usual, however, and the film offers a meaty role to lantern-jawed Warner Richmond, who more often than not was reduced to playing unnamed henchmen.
