Overland Bound is a 1929 American Western film directed by Leo D. Maloney and starring Maloney, Allene Ray, Jack Perrin and Lydia Knott. It is considered to be the first all-talking B western to be made, following on from the success of the hit Fox western In Old Arizona. Despite the drawback of the film's poor sound recording quality, it was successfully distributed.[1] It was Mahoney's final film as he died shortly after its release.


A man tries to trick a mother and her daughter into selling their ranch, a potentially lucrative property on the site of a future railroad. He hires a man to pose as the mother's long-lost son.
