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
Billy Blazes (Harold Lloyd) rides into a rough Western town to take out the bad guys and escape with the girl. This 13-minute short remains interesting throughout but the strange thing is that it appears the director forgot to go for any laughs. It's not like there are gags on screen that don't work but instead there aren't any gags for some reason.
You can find this short in New Line's wonderful box set that features countless shorts, features and some very nice extras. All the films come with a new score and remastered video.
