Beautiful print, middling movie
9 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Copyright 15 January 1923 by Warner Brothers Pictures, Inc. U.S. release: 1 April 1923. No recorded New York opening. 6 reels. 6,300 feet. Location scenes filmed in Omaha, Nebraska. Original running time: approximately 90 minutes. The Warner Brothers Library cutdown runs no more than 75 minutes at correct speed.

SYNOPSIS: A newly ordained minister from a mining town finds himself in the middle of a conflict between the mine owner and his workers. A complicating factor is that he's in love with the plutocrat's daughter.

COMMENT: This film's cutdown version is now available on a superb tinted print from Grapevine. But while it's certainly most pleasing to have this beautiful tinted DVD in our possession, the fact remains that the movie still has the same bothersome defects. Our main worry is that Kenneth Harlan is totally unconvincing as the minister. He doesn't look like Winston Miller grown up. He doesn't act like Winston Miller grown up. In fact, aside from the climactic scenes, he doesn't act like a movie hero at all. Not to put too fine a point on it, he acts like a sook. This is doubly disappointing because the rest of the players – led by ever reliable Hobart Bosworth – contribute solidly all the way down the line. William A. Seiter's direction is competent enough, but really rises to the occasion in the climactic action scenes.
