Clint Eastwood, eat your heart out!
11 October 2000 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Long before Hollywood had thought of the 'adult western' William S. Hart was portraying darkly and ambiguously heroic characters on horseback, and this film is a fine example. Without recourse to special effects and action scenes, his deeply nuanced and complex characterizations and the body language of brilliantly framed shots conveyed so much more than modern films seem able to do with all the technology the current industry has to offer. Bring back the silents! They had *faces* then.
