Going Astray
26 May 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Minister Robert Edeson (as Austin, the "Sky Pilot") arrives in a bawdy Wyoming town, and books himself a room in the local saloon. At first, the locals make fun of Mr. Edeson's prayerful ways; but, sexy saloon dancer Rhea Mitchell (as Belle Shields) warms up to him. This doesn't sit well with stagecoach robber William S. Hart (as Texas), who was planning to wed Ms. Mitchell. Seeing the light of the Lord, Mitchell leaves Mr. Hart, and her dance hall days, for a life with Parson Edeson. Eventually, the white light shines on Hart, too. Then, the surprisingly fickle Mitchell begins to step out with tempting Herschel Mayall (as "Handsome Jack" Malone); and, Hart rushes to defend his ex-girlfriend's honor.

Reginald Barker's "On the Night Stage" is no "Bargain", but it does have Hart; who was, at the time, the biggest box office star in the country. Hart performs his part well. But, the scenario is absurd; with the weak-willed "Belle Shields" saddled with an increasingly most difficult to comprehend motivation.
