Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Western Honor was one of the last silent Bob Steele westerns for low-budget Syndicate Pictures. The story follows the established pattern, as two-fisted Steele endeavors to defend heroine Ione Reed against the villains. The diminutive hero takes on so many hulking opponents at once that the action is nearly as funny as a Mack Sennett 2-reeler. Indeed, critics in 1930 were of the opinion that the film was deliberately designed as a parody. By the time Western Honor made the rounds in New York, Bob Steele's notably superior talkie westerns had been in circulation for nearly a year.
