While running away from his girl's father, their car breaks down in front of a dance hall run by crooks. Harold has to not only stay one step ahead of the girl's father, but also those trying to rob them of everything they have.
The mining town of Peaceful Vale is a rough place, and sheriff 'Gun Shy' Gallagher can do little about it, since the town is ruled by Crooked Charley, the gambler. Charley runs Pierre the tavern keeper out of town, and takes Pierre's daughter Nell as his prisoner. But when Billy Blazes sees Charley's henchmen harassing Pierre, he rescues Pierre and then proceeds to confront Charley back at the tavern. Written by
When the local outlaws in Peaceful Vale become too rambunctious, it's up to BILLY BLAZES, ESQ. to gallop into town and restore law & order.
Harold gets to spoof William S. Hart in this very short & funny film. The various ways in which he subdues the bad guys & makes his getaway is the focus of attention here. The very tall Chinese waiter is also quite humorous. Bebe Daniels plays the Girl in the tavern; Snub Pollard portrays the cowardly Sheriff.
Movie mavens will note that this short film was produced shortly before Harold lost half of his right hand in a freak studio accident.
Robert Israel has composed an excellent film score which perfectly complements Harold's antics on the screen.
