“Green Grass Of
At Star for Two Days
Said to be the greatest adven-
ture of the new West, Mary O’-
Hara’s "Green Grass of Wyoming”
appearing Sunday and Monday at
the Star, offers a story of the
tanchers and their horses. Thun-
derhead, the great white stallion
outlaw who pirates away any val-
uable mares from their corrals,
brings on trouble a plenty for the
Beaver Greenway (Charles Co-
bum), irate over the loss of a
chestnut mare, blames these losses
on his neighbors, the McLaughlins
(Lloyd Nolan and Geraldine Wall)
whose son Ken (Robert Arthur)
had owned the stallion at one time.
Carey (Peggy Cummins), Beaver’s
granddaughter, who tries to keep
their ranch going while he is "in-
disposed”—a rather frequent oc-|
currenee—is in love with Ken and
tries unsuccessfully to dissuade
Beaver from starting a ruckus
with Ken and his father Rob.
Ken doesn’t learn what has hap-
pened until later, when he returns;
from the city where he sold Roll's,
polo ponies, and used the cash as
payment for Crown Jewel, a hand-
some trotting mare. Rob does not
disclose his distrust of the deal,
but makes an offer to Ken that
if the horse pays its way, Ken will
get a share of the ranch. Accord-
ingly, Ken begins to train Jewel
for the state fair trotting races.
As racing time nears, Beaver
secretly clocks Jewel, craftily test
ing Sundown against her. It is,
hard to choose the better horse.
The State Race actually becomes
a contest between Sundown and |
Jewel, with Jewel losing the first
heat when her shoe becomes loose.
She wins the second, and the third
race is hers until, in the last
stretch, she slows and breaks. Sun-
down goes on to victory and the
$.1,000 purse, while Ken and his
trainer try to puzzle out Jewel’s
collapse. It is Beaver, who, return-!
ing to the stable to cheer up Ken, I
discovers that Jewel is going to!
have a colt.
A fetv weeks later, Ken and!
Carey are elated when Jewel's colt
is horn—as white as Thunderhead.
