Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Comedy and thrills are doled out in equal measure in the Buck Jones western The Gentle Cyclone. The story is motivated by a long-standing feud, which comes to a head when each of the warring families tries to adopt an orphan girl who is about to receive a huge inheritance. Into the fray comes a cowboy named Wales (Buck Jones), who tries to put an end to the feud -- and line his own pocket -- by adopting the girl himself. When he discovers that the "child" is actually a full-grown woman (Rose Blossom), and a real looker at that, Wales begins entertaining thoughts of matrimony -- but the picture isn't over just yet. Stealing the show from the hero and heroine is Oliver Hardy playing a bucolic sheriff -- still a year or so away from his teaming with Stan Laurel.
