Movie Info

This virile drama, produced by William Randolph Hearst's Cosmopolitan Pictures, was based on the novel by then-popular author Peter B. Kyne. After serving in Siberia during the Great War, Don Mike Farrell (Forrest Stanley) returns to California to discover that his father has died and the family ranch is now in the hands of John Parker (Alfred Allen). Parker's daughter, Kay (Marjorie Daw), falls in love with Farrell and tries to help him get his rights back. Her attempts, however, are in vain. Parker is working in partnership with Okada, a Japanese land speculator (Warner Oland), who is determined to have the ranch for himself. Farrell has to use all his resourcefulness to defeat the two men. First, he raises the necessary money through chasing down one of his father's debtors, and raises the rest at the racetrack. He then bluffs Parker and wins back his land -- along with Parker's admiration and Kay's hand.

Critic Reviews for The Pride of Palomar

All Critics (2)

Even if they had left out the ab- surd propaganda, The Pride of Palomar would be a stupid picture. Under the circumstances, it is just plain terrible.

October 6, 2021 | Full Review…

Either the director made the last scenes in the picture first, when everybody concerned was fresh, or else he made them last and genius displayed therein Was the result of enthusiasm for an irksome task finished. They were by far the best part.
