In the town of Hard Times, a stranger rides in and terrorizes the small settlement. He kills a number of townsfolk, including Fee, the town's founder. Mayor Will Blue fails to stand up to the man, who rapes saloon whore Molly and burns down the town. Blue promises to rebuild the town after the stranger rides on, but the townsfolk give up and leave. A wagon load of prostitutes led by "entrepeneur" Zar shows up and together with Blue, they rebuild the town. But Molly's desire for revenge and her anger at Blue for not protecting her eat at her, and Blue promises that things will be different when the stranger returns. And return he does. Written by

The first time the miners visit Hard Times (in the movie) there is a scene where one of Zar's girls is dancing on a table with several miners standing around her. In a later scene (at a later date in the movie time frame) the same girl is dancing on the the table with the same men around her in the exact same order of being next to each other. See more
