This is possibly one of the most beautiful films William S. Hart made and so it is appropriate that it is also the first Hart film available in HD. The cinematography and gorgeous tints are absolutely breathtaking.
The story is a generally fine, tense revenge drama but it lacks a certain polish and oomph present in Hart’s best work. Still, well worth seeing and feasting your eyes.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
Hart gets his revenge and leaves his lady love behind the continue wandering the trail.

Thanks for covering this. I’ve been eyeballing the BD and wondering if I should get it. Now if SOMEONE will put out a restoration of HELL’S HINGES!
Agreed! Would love to own that on Bluray.
Looks like a fascinating one! Thanks for sharing information about the film in your longer review. I have seen perhaps one William S. Hart film, and this one sounds interesting. The cinematography seems compelling, too!
It’s really beautiful! Hell’s Hinges and The Toll Gate are still my favorites but this one is well worth your while.
