"The Trial Beyond" is the ninth of the B Westerns that a young John Wayne made for the poverty row studio Lone Star/Monogram and is one of the most unusual because for once the usual cast of characters is different. In addition to the Duke (before he was really the Duke) we have come to expect to see George Hayes (before he was Gabby), the legendary stunt man Yakima Canutt, and character actor Earl Dwire. The last one on that list is around, again playing a henchman, and Canutt is doing the stunts, without a specific on screen role for once, but instead of Hayes we have both Noah Beery and Noah Berry, Jr. You have to wonder why things were different this time around, but I have yet to uncover an explanation.
In terms of the action sequences this is one of the better Lone Star efforts. I have seen this 1934 film cited as showing how Canutt and Wayne had developed by this point the "pass system" that is now the standard technique for on-screen fight scenes. However, the story is pretty standard. Canutt does several of his better stunts, performing a leap from a moving train off a bridge into a river and riding horses off of a cliff. Another great stunt man, Ed Parker, plays Ryan the Mountie (it is in Canada, another interesting difference, so there has to be a Mountie).
Set in Canada but beautifully photographed in California around Mammoth Lakes by Archie Stout, "The Trail Beyond" has Wayne playing Rod Drew, who is up in French-Canadian country trying to track down Felice Newsome (Verna Hillie), the daughter of an old friend. On the way he encounters an old college friend, Wabi (Beery, Jr.) who has to be rescued from some card cheats who frame him for a murder.

I've seen RIDERS OF DESTINY about seven times over a 30-year period. I enjoy it even though the plot, dialog, acting, fistfights, etc. are very crude. This was the first of John Wayne's Lone Star Westerns, a series of films made for about $10,000 apiece. But it has a certain charm I can't explain. Yakima Canutt does a couple of nice stunts as well; Cecilia Parker is as pretty as Toby Wing, in my opinion (Toby was the "Young and Healthy" girl in 42ND STREET).
This DVD, released by Columbia Tri-Star, has the clearest print of RIDERS OF DESTINY that I recall seeing - a very sharp image in many places. Unfortunately, it omits at least 5 1/2 minutes of the film, including a critical plot point. The ranchers say they'll sign a new water rights contract with the evil land baron, only if he'll agree to one additional clause. This version then skips the scene where they say what the clause is, and so the villain's extreme dismay near the end of the film isn't adequately explained.
Perhaps as compensation for the missing scenes, a pseudo-symphonic soundtrack has been dubbed in at various points, sticking out like a huge sore thumb.
I think in the future I'll continue to watch the Goodtimes DVD (2000) for this film; their copy is more complete, even though the picture is somewhat washed out.
The only other film I've watched on this DVD is TWO FISTED LAW starring Tim McCoy (and a small part by John Wayne). I've only seen TWO FISTED LAW once before, so I'm not sure if anything's missing. As a movie, I found it less enjoyable than the films starring John Wayne. The print was in fairly good condition.
When I get around to watching the other films on this DVD 2-Pack I may post more information about print quality and omissions, if I can determine that. At present I give this set 2 out of 5 stars.

Nice print, but truncated (rats!) April 1 2004

Digital transfer 1 star; Paradiase Canyon 4 stars = 2 stars May 20 2013
By S. H. Costanzo - Published on Amazon.com
This is the second movie I have seen in as many days that has been so-called "digitally remastered." I can tell you this, whoever is doing these poor-quality digital transfers should be shot--not fatally, but wounded in their sitting muscle. These cheap transfers are so pixelated that during action scenes the viewing experience is completely ruined as actors and background (in panning shots) turn into a mass of large pixels. And since John Wayne movies are all about action, low resolution digital transfers like these are totally unacceptable.

The other film I watched that had been similarly digitized was "Driftwood," one of Natalie Wood's first films as a child. "Driftwood" is not an action movie, but even the movement of an actor across the set caused their image to be fuzzed out in large pixels. This was most bothersome in the courtroom scene, a key part of the story.

Taking classic films like "Driftwood" and "Paradise Canyon" and claiming that they have been digitally remastered might mislead people--even archivists--into thinking the original film versions are now redundant and could subject them to ill-handling, improper storage, or even loss. Since legitimate high-quality digital transfers are a way of preserving the old films, saying this one or others like it have been so preserved is therefore a dangerous thing. If one assumes by the doctored photo on the DVD case that this film has been preserved, that assumption is patently incorrect. It was simply digitized, and poorly at that.

The original film versions of classic movies like this need to be protected and preserved by experts instead of being put in the hands of amateurs, or worse yet, exploited by cutthroats who are simply out to make a quick buck. If this trend continues, you should hold onto any VHS (video tape) copies of these old classics, as they could become very dear indeed if the original films are lost or destroyed.
Early John Wayne --- Interesting Oct. 9 2010
By Kimo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
John Wayne is my favorite movie star even today. In the 50's I used to walk a couple of miles on Saturdays to see him (for only 10 cents). I originally started liking him because he couldn't sing --- as a young lad, I wanted to see action and not a lot of singing like the other oaters were providing. TWO FISTED LAW was particularly rewarding because it showed John Wayne in a supporting role vice a staring role --- it was good to see him on his way up to star dome and was the first flick I've seen in a good many years where he was not number one. The other movies on this DVD are typical 30's John Wayne and are well worth watching for the John Wayne fan. The transfer to DVD was of excellent quality although there seems to be areas where some scenes were cut short.

Early John Wayne April 22 2014
By Working Nights - Published on Amazon.com
A person has to be a John Wayne Fan in order to view and appreciate his early movies. Made in 1935, this was just his eighth year in the movie business, second of making films in which he was credited and still in his first of Starring. This was in his B movie times, when studios were churning out 6-12 films per year. The story line is predictable and thin in places. But, regardless, John Wayne still had a presence on the screen. As a study of John Wayne goes, this is an example of things to come. Obviously one of the building blocks to John Wayne The Legend.

The Search for Lost Treasure July 20 2010
By Acute Observer - Published on Amazon.com
The Trail Beyond, 1934 film

The story begins with a lone rider in the country. He is asked to find a missing brother, John and his daughter. Rod Drew takes a train to the Canadian Northwest, and meets a friend from college. There is a fight over gambling and a shot. Rod and Robby jump from the moving train. They change out of suits into Western clothes and ride away fast. There is a chase, the pair jump for it into a lake. A Mountie is sent to get them. They find a deserted cabin with two skeletons! There is a map to a gold mine. They tell people they are hunting wolves. Benoit looks at the map; does he plan to betray his trust? The villains capture Felice. Can Rod and Robby rescue her? Jules LaRocque is behind this. The rescue works. There is another chase. A swift canoe gets them away.

LaRocque sends Marie to get the gold map. She can keep books for Newsome. `What do you care?" A Mountie shows up to arrest the pair. It's a trick! Rod breaks a bottle and cuts the ropes to get free. Rod is smart, he has the real map. They find the mine and a picture to identify the heiress. The villains go back and get a canoe to chase the good guys. Rod upsets their plans. But the canoe with the wounded Mountie drifts towards the water fall. Rod to the rescue in the shallows. The villains plan to attack Wabinosh House. Rod rides to get help from the Mounties, who deputize and arm all the men in the settlement for help. Both groups ride, one to attack and one to defend. There are a lot of shots fired without any damage. "Not so fast, Marie." "The Redcoats are coming" shouts Benoit. Will Jules get away with the gold found in the mine?

The villains flee, the posse is in pursuit. Gunshots drop riders. Rod chases Jules' wagon. The remaining villains are captured. Jules' plan is upset. There is a happy ending. That gambler recovered and exonerated Robby. Felice will return to her uncle to live a better life. You can assume that Rod will accomplish his next mission.

This is another story how money and greed lead to murder and robbery. This was adapted from a James Oliver Curwood story "The Wolf Hunters". A good story makes a better movie in spite of a low budget. This film stars Noah Beery Sr. and Jr.
