Ace of the Saddle ( 1919 ) Lost Silent Western
31 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When cattle rancher Cheyenne Harry Henderson ( Harry Carey ) discovers that rustlers are attacking his herd, he informs Yucca County's Sheriff ( Joel Harris ) but learns that the lawman is in cahoots with the outlaws. Harry then appeals to Sheriff Faulkner ( Duke R. Lee ) of neighboring Pinkerton County, but Faulkner is powerless to intervene. Madeline ( Peggy Pearce ), Faulkner's daughter, attracts Harry's attention and the two fall in love. When Madeline, who loathes violence, asks him to give up wearing a gun, Harry complies. Because the rustlers are prohibited by an unwritten law from shooting an unarmed man, they poison the waterhole at Harry's ranch. Harry harnesses six horses to pull his cabin into Pinkerton, where some of the rustlers are arrested when they follow. The Yucca sheriff and his gang rescue them and abduct Madeline. Harry takes his gun, rescues the girl, and lures the gang to his cabin where he tricks them into drinking some contaminated water. After the men are recaptured, Harry's foreman is elected sheriff of Yucca County, and Harry and Madeline marry.

This 1919 silent western was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company and directed by John Ford, starring Harry Carey. Sadly, Ace of the Saddle now remains a lost film.
