Victor Adamson's Superior Talking Pictures (which was laughably far from "superior") released this poor oater starring former silent screen cowboy Buddy Roosevelt as a cowboy shot and left for dead by a gang of outlaws. Recovering, the tough hombre discovers that his friend (Bob Williamson) is a member of the gang, hired by nasty Allen Holbrook to kidnap Clarise Woods, Roosevelt's adopted daughter. Adapted from a story, Gun Glory by Burl R. Tuttle, Circle Canyon becomes overly confusing in the incapable hands of Poverty Row entrepreneur Adamson (aka Denver Dixon), who seems to have spared every expense producing this turkey. Tuttle's story is better served by 'Neath the Arizona Skies, a 1934 John Wayne Lone Star Western, which, while no masterpiece, is at least somewhat intelligible.
