The Cow's Kimono

NOT ON DVD

As a result of two years' courtship, Glen [sic] and his wife embark in the old reliable comedy flivver—loaded down with their worldly possessions—for a trip through the ranch country. Darkness of night and dangerous roads force them to seek shelter in a nearby ranch-house owned by a father and his formidable-looking daughter. The latter has a playful little habit of pulling out her two guns and frequently indulging in a shooting spree; during which time no one within range is safe. On this particular night, with Glen [sic] and his wife established as guests, her shooting complex again manifests itself with the result that the couple are glad to escape after several riotous adventures.

What the experts say
"Here's a very fair Glen [sic] Tryon two-reeler out of the Roach studios; and slightly better than the average Tryon effort for the simple reason that the star has an excellent supporting cast. The honors really belong to Charlotte Mineau in her impersonation of the wild and wooly gun-girl of the wide-open spaces." ~ Edw. G. Johnston, Motion Picture News (26 June 1926)
