A few mistakes -

"Ride "Em Cowboys" not Cowboys

"In Harms Way" - you forgot the "In"

"The Shepherd of the Hills" - not Shepard

"Texas Terror" - not Horror

He also did around 40 more films between 1926 and 1934 that you did not include.

There is something that went wrong with this quiz. I had the answers from 1926 on, but they are not there now. I will have to look into it. The Cowboys is correct. I have the movie right here in front of me. It is The Cowboys, A Mark Rydell film. I own the DVD and it is sitting on the desk in front of me. I will look into the others.
