The Light of Western Stars (1925) - Lost ?
21 July 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

During a poker game, Al Hammond ( William Scott ) kills one of Brand's men and flees across the Mexican border, fearing that Brand ( Noah Beery ), a notorious bandit and killer, will attempt to revenge himself. Madeline Hammond ( Billie Dove ), Al's sister, comes from the East and is accosted at the station by Gene Stewart ( Jack Holt ), a drunken gunfighter who has vowed to marry the first white woman he sees. When he discovers who Madeline is, Gene summons decency enough to send for Al's foreman, who escorts her to her brother's ranch. Brand's men run off the Hammond cattle, and Madeline appeals to Gene for help. Sobering up, Gene organizes a posse and recovers the cattle, dispersing Brand's gang. Madeline and Gene fall in love; but when she sees him talking to Bonita, Al's sweetheart, she suspects him of philandering. Gene gets mad and rides over the border. Brand kidnaps Madeline and later captures Gene and Al. Brand sends Al back to his ranch to raise a $10,000 ransom, threatening to kill Gene if he does not return. Al returns with armed men instead of money, arriving just in time to save Gene from death and his sister from certain dishonour. Gene kills Brand, and the outlaw gang is broken up.

This 1925 silent western/drama was based from the novel The Light of Western Stars by Zane Grey, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring Jack Holt, Billie Dove and Noah Beery Sr. Sadly, The Light of Western Stars is now listed as a lost silent film.
