Simple early western
28 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is perhaps the simplest form of western you can get. Broncho Billy gets into a confrontation in the bar but can't do anything because he hasn't got a gun / can't use a gun so he goes away to learn, goes back and confronts him again.

The version I watched last night lasted only nine minutes and although it ended quite abruptly I think it was pretty much complete. Although fairly primitive it was quite enthusiastically made and therefore worth watching. You can definitely see from this one why the Broncho Billy films were so popular at the time.

This is the first 'Broncho Billy' film I've seen and the emphasis was very much on fast paced action, in stark contrast to the William S.Hart productions around the same time (which I like very much). The final scene was a little unrealistic but it's definitely worth a look for fans of westerns and especially silent ones.
