Womanhandled (1925)

Just watched the surviving elements of WOMANHANDLED (1925) yesterday, from the Treasures Vol.5, the DVD set of films with a western theme. Evidently this film is missing the final two reels, however, the last gag of the film, which is really quite clever, does survive and was included. The film stars Richard Dix and the lovely Esther Ralston. Enough of the film survives that it almost looks like it could have ended where it does, but a stampede sequence near the end is lost. Without giving away too much of the film, it is a clver spoof on western films of the day.

Richard Dix is a New York playboy who visits a cattle ranch in Texas where the old west isn't quite the old west.

 

I would recommend getting this DVD set as it also includes a beautiful print of Clara Bow's 1926 film MANTRAP and a rarely seen feature from former bandit Al Jennings, THE WOMAN IN THE DUGOUT (1918). I first saw a clip of that film in the Brownlow & Gill HOLLYWOOD series. Sadly it only exists as a 16mm print. The print of WOMANHANDLED, however, is really quite beautiful, with no signs of wear or nitrate deterioration.
