Yellow Dust (1936)

When I was in my early teens, I used to watch CBC's Saturday morning programming, in which they often strung together a couple of long-forgotten second features from the Saturday matinee days. One of my most joyous discoveries was this wonderful B western starring Richard Dix as a white-hatted cowboy who gets implicated in a stagecoach robbery. While a crisp, well-made little movie (with a neat climax in a dust storm), it is also played for a couple of laughs, as the real bandits simultaneously spit beer out of their mouths when someone mentions the stage being robbed. Sadly, I haven't seen this movie since, but I hope someone finds a print of this someday.
