An innocent cowboy is once again suspected of a crime he didn't commit in The Lonesome Trail, an obscure early talkie western from low-budget producer Syndicate that wasted the talents of silent western stars Yakima Canutt, Bob Reeves, Art Mix, and Monte Montague. The accuser (Montague), as it turns out, is the leader of a gang of rustlers, a man the hero once trusted. The star of this fiasco, Charles Delaney, gets to warble a couple of tunes (including Oh, Susannah) but did not set the screen aflame with his vocals or start a new trend. Delaney had enjoyed some success playing collegiate roles in the silent era but was consigned to supporting roles thereafter.
