Silent-screen cowboy Buffalo Bill Jr. (born Jay Wilsey) was fighting for his career by 1930. One of his early talkies, The Texan (1930), remained on the shelf for two years before the producer, William Pizor, found a distributor. South of Sonora, made by an outfit calling itself West Coast Productions, was unfortunately foisted upon an unsuspecting audience without delay. Almost incomprehensibly inept in all departments, the oater starred Buffalo Bill Jr. as a cowboy whose would-be father-in-law (the veteran, Horace B. Carpenter) accuses him of cattle rustlings. Quite a few well-known Western villains appear, including the always-welcome Lew Meehan, but the film played only at the most desperate movie theaters.
