William S. Hart plays an outlaw who, gosh darn it, ends up being hired as the marshal of a small, crime-infested town. Will he find redemption? Oh, come on. Do cops like donuts? Of course he will but getting there is all the fun.
Hart is ably backed by future director and author Margery Wilson, as well as the vampish Louise Glaum and veteran baddie Robert McKim. It’s lighter than Hell’s Hinges but a grand bit of western fun and Hart’s inevitable meltdown is a highlight.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
His past is revealed but Hart kills McKim in an honest-to-goodness showdown and the townsfolk ask him to stay as their marshal.
If it were a dessert it would be: Caramel Apple Cake. Classic flavors done exceptionally well.
Availability: Released on DVD.
