HENRY CLAY THURSTON

The Arizona Kid - watch online

The Arizona Kid is a Roy Rogers movie from 1939. Roy plays an ex-confederate soldier who returns to  Texas to help the town get rid of the Carpetbag governing tyrants.
 
Early Hollywood did not think it necessary to denigrate the South at every turn. There were movies, other than Gone With The Wind, where the south and southerners were treated kindly.
 
Like a lot of westerns the movie is about an hour long. That way mom could drop the kids off at the movies where it cost 10 cents per kid, and do her shopping which took about an hour then come back and pick up the kids.
 
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.
