""The Western Motion-Picture"" which appeared in 'Modern Screen' for September 24, 1932, reveals Grey's fine sense of popular taste. Like most extremely successful writers, he knew -perhaps intuitively- what the American people wanted: the outdoors, excitement, love, conflict, and finally, inevitably, the triumph of virtue. ..
