The Lone Star Ranger (1919) - Lost ?
9 September 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Important note: This is not a film review. I hope to be able to find and 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.

When Captain Neil, leading the Texas Rangers to wipe out cattle rustlers along the Mexican border, is ambushed and shot in the back, his best friend Steele ( William Farnum ) vows to catch the killers alone. Traveling in disguise, Steele rescues Ray Longstreth ( Louise Lovely ), who is returning home from school in the East, from two Mexican renegades, and wins the gratitude of Ray's father Cyrus ( Charles Clary ), a prominent rancher and secretly the leader of the rustlers. Although Longstreth wants to quit rustling because of his daughter's return, his subordinates, Jeff Lawson ( Lamar Johnstone ), who killed Neil, and Bully Brome ( G. Raymond Nye ), blackmail him into remaining. When Steele accepts Longstreth's offer of a job and discovers his involvement, he tells Ray, whose pleas provoke Steele's promise not to harm him. After Steele kills Brome and learns that Longstreth was forced to continue with the gang, he confronts Lawson, who, like Steele, loves Ray, kills him a duel, routs the gang, and leaves town with Ray as his wife.

This 1919 silent western/drama was based from the novel The Lone Star Ranger by Zane Grey, produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring William Farnum and Louise Lovely. The survival status of The Lone Star Ranger (1919) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
