Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tom Keene's first western entry of 1932, Partners casts the star as the partner of travelling medicine-show entrepreneur Billy Franey (who's quite funny in his few scenes). When Franey is murdered, Keene is accused of the crime. Escaping from the sheriff on his faithful horse Flash, Keene sets about to prove that someone else was responsible for the killing. This proves to be a boon to the burgeoning romance between our hero and Franey's daughter Nancy Drexel. Like many of Keene's early talkies, Partners is set in a "modern" West, where Model T's and roadsters rub noses with the equestrian population.
