Former silent-movie matinee idol Rod LaRocque does what he can with the Poverty Row quickie Taming the Wild. LaRocque is cast as family attorney Dick Clayton, who puts in overtime keeping headstrong heiress June Bolton (Maxine Doyle) out of trouble. Alas, June is attracted to gangster types, leading to her inevitable kidnapping and Clayton's equally inevitable race to the rescue. The script and the acting aren't too bad, but the camerawork is atrocious, robbing several scenes of their dramatic potential. Taming the Wild is based on Shipmates, a story by literary workhorse Peter B. Kyne.
