Important note: This is not a film review. It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
In a drunken fog, Gene Stewart ( Dustin Farnum ) makes a bet with Sheriff Hawes ( Bert Apling ) that he will marry the next girl he sees, and when a pretty girl gets off the train, he compels Padre Marcos ( Joseph Swickard ) to marry them. Horrified to discover that she is Majesty Hammond ( Winifred Kingston ), the sister of his employer, Al Hammond ( Eddie Hearne ), Gene apologizes to Al, and Majesty, amused, defends him. While Gene is in Mexico, Don Carlos ( George Fields ), Stewart's enemy, kidnaps Majesty, but Gene rescues her. Don Carlos and his men plan to have Gene illegally executed in Mexico, and he is facing the firing squad when Majesty and a group of riders arrive to save him. Majesty realizes that she loves Gene, and the two begin their married life together.
This 1918 silent western/drama was based on the novel The Light of Western Stars by Zane Grey, starring Dustin Farnum. The Light of the Western Stars (1918) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
