The Lord Blinks
11 June 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

God sends frontier parson and gunslinger William S. Hart (as Jim Houston), his pretty wife Dorothy Dalton (as Mary), and their cute little daughter Thelma Salter (as Alice) to the western town of "Barren Gulch". Of course, Mr. Hart finds the town sinfully in need of his services. He needn't have looked any further than his own back yard, however; soon, Ms. Dalton decides to run off with the local sleaze, Robert McKim (as "Doc" Hardy) after he is nice to her in the grocery store. The Lord must have blinked when Mr. McKim winked.

Thomas H. Ince's "The Disciple" is inexplicable. Hart is an odd man of God, threatening a flock at gunpoint, "Are you going' to force me to preach to cripples?" Dalton's abandonment of her husband and young daughter is not very plausible, assuming Hart fathered the impossibly blonde curled girl. Dalton performs well, considering the weak material; and, perversely, her scenes with McKim look good. Although unseen, "God" is a character who becomes more and more involved in the plot, which makes it more silly than not.
