BOB STEELE TO THE RESCUE!
It’s a family feud, starting two
generations ago, that adds to the1
hatred felt by Kent, arch-plotter in j
"1 he Last of the Warrens,” latest
Bob Steele thrill-Western, now play-
ing at the Colonial Theatre, for
young Ted Warren, his successful
rival in love. An oldtime Kentucky
feud, as history proves, usually lasted
until the last survivor of the con-
tending families was wiped out of
existence. In this case, Kent, shoots !
and imagines he has slain Ted’s
father and makes desperate efforts
to eliminate the son as well. But the
elder Warren survives his wound.1
and Ted carries the war into his foe 1
nian’s territory with a zest and dead- i
I.V determination that sweeps asuK 1
all opposition. You’ll glory in this
dashing, romantic tale of reckles
youth and matchless daring, the 1
greatest contribution to the screen
made by Bob Steele.
