Fun Size Review: The Cradle of Courage

William S. Hart hangs up his cowboy hat in this cops-and-robbers tale of post-WWI San Francisco.

Hart is a veteran and ex-crook who comes back from his doughboy stint a changed man. The robber is now a cop and he is forced to investigate his old friends and his own family. Good enough but no classic. Co-star Ann Little is excellent and the vintage footage of San Francisco is fun.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Hart clears his name after being accused of murder, guns down the villain and marries Little. Par for the course, really.

Read my full-length review here.

If it were a dessert it would be: Rocky Road Ice Cream. You got your cool stuff, your dark stuff and your fun stuff. An old hat but welcome all the same.
