The Ice Man Rideth

Stagecoach robber Ice Harding and his gang are wanted all across California for their activities, but trouble brews when Ice gets a paint horse from the wild herd that his gang finds too much of a giveaway when recognizing the gang. Ice decides to split from his men and makes way to town to start a new life. He meets Betty Werdin and his uncle Admiral Bates and Ice is immediately falls for the young lady. We find out that Bates runs a dance hall on the Barbary Coast (with Betty as a dance hall girl), so he uses his niece to swindle Ice of his money. Betty refuses, so she and Bates return to San Francisco, where Ice manages to make his way. After nearly being shanghaied at Bates' saloon, Ice notices Betty and both seemed shamed because of their pasts, so they leave back to town, where a cross country horse race is being held and the $1000 grand prize will help the two start a new life, unless the sheriff and his men decide to lock up Ice for his past crimes. As usual, this William S. Hart film does not disappoint with a good deal of action, drama, romance and all in the right doses for a western. The standard Hart formula is well utilized here of the reformed bandit making good, but my gripe with the film were the scenes on the Barbary Coast because I felt it really made this western actually not be in the old west, as the other scenes indicated. Great fight though in the bar room between Hart and Kortman. The horse race at the end was exciting only topped by the ending with the confrontation between Hart and the sheriff. Rating, 8.
