Flame of Barbary Coast
In this western, a Montana cattle rancher travels to San Francisco's notorious Barbary Coast and ends up falling in love with a dance hall girl who helps him win big at the gaming tables. Unfortunately, a card sharp takes it all from the innocent rube. The dance hall girl is also involved with the sharper. This western chronicles the way in which the rancher gets his revenge and wins back the love of the woman. The great earthquake of 1906 provides the story's climax.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Before becoming a major box-office star, John Wayne made many B-pictures, such as this Republic flick, a romantic triangle set in San Francisco circa 1906, which was nominated for several technical Oscars."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The script is so lame and murky that even the Duke doesn't seem interested in his character."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
