White Men Can't Jump
24 May 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In a western cave, white William S. Hart (as Black Deering), leader of the outlaw Raiders, feels the law crashing in on his gang's crime spree. Fellow bandit Joseph Singleton (as Tom Jordan) thinks Mr. Hart is chicken, and goads his rival and the gang into one more heist. Of course, as Hart feared, things go all wrong. Later, on the lam from both Jordan and the law, Hart hides out with lonely white Anna Q. Nilsson (as Mary Brown). Ms. Nilsson is living alone with son Richard Headrick (as "The Little Feller"), since the disappearance of her husband…

"The Toll Gate" delivers the expected Hart western elements; however, they do not coalesce. It's a little unpleasant to start off with Hart disarmed by his gang's "mutiny", but nice to see him tough it out. Watch for a pivotal scene wherein Hart opens Nilsson's Bible: in it, he reads the verse "By their fruits ye shall know them" and locates a photograph which reveals something important about the film. The "by their fruits" theme is completely illogical if you think about the photograph. Also, Hart's cabin revelation is rather foolishly timed; obviously, it should have been made some minutes later (relating it more to Singleton's threat).
