Well acted, even without intertitle cards.
19 February 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

'Broncho Billy' Anderson stars in this bizarre western. While the plot might seem a bit heavy-handed, I was impressed with Anderson's acting and the way the story was well-told without the use of intertitle cards.

When the film begins, Broncho Billy is a crook--and he steals some gold. While on the run from the law, Broncho Billy forces his way into a home and treats the folks pretty shabbily. However, the lady of the house is able to get a gun and shoots the crook! Billy, however, is able to stagger off and is taken in by a very religious couple. Their goodness lead to Billy's conversion and he soon turns himself in to accept his punishment. What's next? See the film.

While I thought the film was a tad heavy-handed, it told the story very well and Anderson was very effective in this odd anti-hero role. Well worth a look.
