“Sagebrush Trail” is a 1933 Western film directed by Armand Schaefer and starring John Wayne. The movie follows the story of John Brant, a man wrongfully accused of robbery and murder. He escapes from prison and goes on the run, trying to clear his name and find the real culprits.
Brant is pursued by the law, as well as by the real criminals, who want to silence him for good. Along the way, he meets a young woman named Sally Blake, who is also on the run from the law, and they team up to try to find the evidence that will prove Brant’s innocence.
The two encounter many obstacles, including gunfights and horseback chases, as they try to outsmart the bad guys and evade the law. In the end, Brant is able to clear his name and bring the real criminals to justice, while also finding love with Sally.
The film is notable for being one of John Wayne’s earliest starring roles, and it helped establish him as a leading man in Hollywood. It also features many of the classic Western tropes, including shootouts, horseback riding, and rugged, lawless landscapes.
