The Phantom Riders (1918) - Lost Silent
16 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Even though United States government lands are open to all for grazing, Dave Bland ( Billy Gettinger ) is determined to reserve Paradise Creek for himself, and to this end he hires "The Unknown" ( Vester Pegg ) and his band of "Phantom Riders" to patrol the valley. Unintimidated, Cheyenne Harry ( Harry Carey ) leads his own small herd of cattle into the valley, and when he ignores Bland's order to leave, the Riders raid his livestock and nearly kill him. Later, The Unknown accosts Harry in the saloon, and after Harry shoots the outlaw, the Phantom Riders surround the bar and begin shooting. Molly ( Molly Malone ), who has been forced into a loveless marriage with Bland, rides for the Forest Rangers, who rush to Harry's aid. Bland is killed and the Riders disperse, leaving Molly free to marry her brave and beloved Harry.

This 1918 silent western was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company and adapted for the screen by scenarist George Hivelyand from the original story written by Henry McRae. The Phantom Riders was directed by John Ford, starring actor Harry Carey. It was part of the "Cheyenne Harry" series of film featurettes. Sadly it now remains a lost silent.
