Unusually Bad Film for Hart
26 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

What was William S. Hart doing? This isn't a typical Hart Western--it's not a Western. Everyone knows Hart could use some variety to his roles, but this film looks as though it were thrown together haphazardly. The camera positioning and editing are primitive compared to other Hart pictures that I've seen from this period. The plot doesn't make sense. The actors, especially the other lead actor, George Fisher, appear as though they're sleepwalking through their parts. Hart doesn't even appear until it's half over. In two episodes, Fisher's character, for reasons not articulated, is bullied to marry women. Is he the villain, or the victim of bizarre happenings? The two episodes are linked in the loosest of ways. So, Fisher goes to Alaska where Hart forces him to marry the woman that Hart loves, which makes no sense. All the while, these women have some inexplicable infatuation for the dunderhead Fisher plays. What a mess.
