At the shot of the cannon they had to rush to grab the land.
11 May 2003 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

William S. Hart makes a moving speech before the movie begins, creating in us a feeling of nostalgia for the old westerns. In the film he is a cowboy that together with all the people that live in that strip of land, has to abandon it for it will be distributed to newcomers.After a certain date no person can enter that area, if they do they will be arrested, and will be called "sooners". All the people are waiting for the moment to come, in a small town, including Hart and his side kick, and Hart falls in love with the half sister of the villain. There is a big contrast in the film between the scenes that show the town, the newcomers, the rush, which are all excellent, with the incredibly naive scenes with the villains. It is hard to believe a film could be so good in certain moments and look so primitive in other scenes, good thing is that those scenes are a small part of it.
