The Trail Beyond is a 1934 Western film starring John Wayne, Noah Beery, Sr., and Noah Beery, Jr.. The motion picture was based on the novel The Wolf Hunters by James Oliver Curwood, which was also adapted as a silent film (1926) and a later sound film (1949), both called The Wolf Hunters.
This film presents an extremely rare opportunity to see Wallace Beery's brother and nephew appear together in a movie. Noah Beery, Jr., who played "Rocky" in The Rockford Files with James Garner 40 years later, has a large role as John Wayne's character's best friend. He appears alongside Wayne in almost every scene, while the senior Beery enjoys only a few minutes of screen time despite his higher billing. Wayne was 27 years old when The Trail Beyond was shot, while Beery, Jr. was 21.
Stunning location backgrounds filmed around Mammoth Lakes, California, set this film firmly apart from most of the other Poverty Row westerns shot during the decade in which Wayne found himself trapped between his screen masterpieces The Big Trail (1930) and Stagecoach (1939).
