The Trail Beyond
The Trail Beyond is a 1934 movie in the western genre starring John Wayne, Noah Beery, Sr., and Noah Beery, Jr.
This film presents an extremely rare opportunity to see Wallace Beery's brother and nephew appear together in a movie. Noah Beery, Jr., who played "Rocky" in The Rockford Files forty years later, has an extremely large role as John Wayne's character's best friend and appears alongside Wayne in almost every scene, while the senior Beery enjoys only a few minutes of screen time despite his higher billing. Wayne was 27 years old when The Trail Beyond was shot, while Beery, Jr. was 21.
Stunning location backgrounds filmed around Mammoth Lakes, California set this film firmly apart from most of the other Poverty Row westerns shot during the decade in which Wayne found himself trapped between his screen masterpieces The Big Trail (1930) and Stagecoach (1939).
