Daniel Boone is a 1936 western film starring beefy Hollywood actor George O'Brien, also known as "The Chest". The movie was adapted from a story by Edgecumb Pinchon and directed by David Howard (The Mystery Squadron, The Border Patrolman). Daniel Boone is a story comprised of three smaller, interrelated subplots. The first story concerns tensions between white settlers and local Indians in Kentucky, 1775. A rebellious Indian, Simon Girty (John Carradine), is growing impatient and causes an insurrection against the settlers. This same group of white settlers also fights with a corrupt group of individuals back in Richmond, Virginia. And it-man Daniel Boone (George O'Brien) competes with a prissy man named Stephen Marlowe (Ralph Forbes) for the love and affection of the beautiful Virginia Randolph (Heather Angel). All three plots are so craftily interwoven, it is hard to tell them apart. If you are a fan of old film with little dialogue, be sure to watch Daniel Boone.
