RUBBER TIRES (Theatrical Release USA 1927)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Rubber Tires
—1927 silent film—still maintains its watch-ability due to a solid story and interesting concept. Portrayal of story relies on Actor Harrison Ford, a silent film actor from that era, and the direction comes from Director Alan Hale, the father of actor Alan Hale, Jr. who played ‘Skipper’ in the Gilligan’s Island television series.

A New York family loses all their money and decides to move to California. Bad luck tags along with them until they find that the car they are driving is worth $10,000 in 1927 money.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Alan Hale for directing effort. Additional characters/cast include: Mary Ellen Stack (Bessie Love), Pa Stack (Erwin Connelly), Charley Stack (Frank Coghlan Jr.), Mrs. Stack (May Robson), Bill James (Harrison Ford), Dudley Blake (John Patrick), and Mexican (Clarence Burton).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Despite its age, it completely works as a lunch watch. Well done and worth watching.
