Drama, History

What it's about: In 1918 a young and simple Mongol herdsman and trapper is cheated out of a valuable fox fur by a European capitalist fur trader. Ostracized from the trading post, he escapes to the hills after brawling with the trader who cheated him. In 1920 he becomes a Soviet partisan, and helps the partisans fight for the Soviets against the occupying British army. However he is captured by the British when they try to requisition cattle from the herdsmen at the same time as the commandant meets with a reincarnated Grand Lama. After the trapper is shot, the army discovers an amulet that suggests he is a direct descendant of Genghis Khan. They find him still alive, so the army restores his health and plans to use him as the head of a puppet regime. The trapper is thus thrust into prominence as he is placed in charge of the puppet government. By the end, however, the "puppet" turns against his masters in an outburst of fury.

Documentary

What it's about: Titles in French and English help us know what we're seeing. In all waters, daphnia abound. They are crustaceans about 2 ml long, with one eye that turns in all directions. Antennae enable daphnia to move: in a close up magnified 150,000 times, we see the muscles of the antennae pulse. We see the eye, the nerve mass, blood globules, and the heart, beating several times per second. The intestine forms a long line. All are females; eggs develop above the intestine. New generations come rapidly. Inside each daphnia are tiny infusoria; we watch them clean the intestine of a dead daphnia. An enemy, the hydra, approaches. A daphnia dies, but many remain.

36. The Old Oregon Trail

IMDB LogoIMDB StarN/A
Reelgood LogoN/A
Released: 1928

What it's about: This independent silent western, shot on location in Northern Oregon, begins with late 19th century settlers moving westward. When roving horse thieves attack their wagon train, the settlers are miraculously saved by a passing trio of happy-go-lucky cowpokes (including the seldom-sober "Calamity Joe"). Years later, the reunited parties face new perils. New Zealand-raised Victor Adamson was a busy director, producer and actor for decades in the "Poverty Row" industry on Hollywood's fringes, spending nearly all his career in westerns like this one. He is primarily remembered today as the father of Al Adamson, who famously (or infamously) built his own little empire of grindhouse and drive-in cheapies in the 1960s and 1970s with such classics as DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN and SATAN'S SADISTS. THE OLD OREGON TRAIL is one of many low-budget features that the senior Adamson made with various actors performing under the pseudonym "Art Mix," whose name not-at-all-coincidentally bore resemblance to early western superstar Tom Mix (and, at one point, the more famous Mix even sued Adamson for copyright infringement). Here, Adamson does the honors himself, his "Art Mix" cutting a handsome figure as Calamity Joe. His pretty leading lady is none other than the off-screen Mrs. Adamson, Dolores Booth. - Dennis Harvey
