The Outcasts of Poker Flat (1919) -- Lost Silent
1 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Square Shootin' Harry Lanyon ( Harry Carey ), a gambling proprietor, loves Ruth Watson ( Gloria Hope ), but because he believes that she loves his adopted son Billy ( Cullen Landis ), he keeps his feelings hidden. Lanyon reads Bret Harte's "The Outcasts of Poker Flats" and imagines himself to be the gambling proprietor John Oakhurst, who takes Sophy ( Gloria Hope ), a girl abandoned on a river boat by gambler Ned Stratton ( Joseph Harris ), to Poker Flats, where Oakhurst's adopted son Tommy ( Cullen Landis ) falls in love with her. Tommy protects Sophy from Stratton and is shot. He recovers and proposes to her, but before the wedding, she sends Oakhurst a note saying that she loves him. Because Oakhurst thinks that Tommy will be better for her, he does not respond. After Oakhurst persuades the vigilantes to burn his gambling house and drive him out, so that Tommy and Sophy can lead a clean life, the couple pursues him to the mountains. During a violent snowstorm, Oakhurst shoots himself, freeing the lovers to return. When Lanyon finishes the story and finds that Ruth loves him, he remarks that "the fellow in the book was a durn fool."

This 1919 western/comedy was produced by the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, directed by John Ford and starred popular actor, Harry Carey. Sadly it remains one of Ford's early silent lost films.
