Storyline

At their headquarters, in the Gila Mountains, in consultation with "Ace High," his lieutenant, he plans depredations on the neighboring settlements. Although Hudspeth is powerful, their rule is disputed by El Salvador, a half-breed, and his following of desperadoes. Desert Pass is the scene of many conflicts between the contending bands. Rumors of the arrival of miners with gold causes El Salvador to send "Cactus" Fuller, his henchman, to levy tribute by a hold-up, which is successful. Flushed with triumph, he boasts in the "Golden Fleece" saloon of the ignominies to which he would treat Cliff Hudspeth if he ever met him. Hudspeth arrives and makes Cactus, whom he throws out of the saloon, realize that something must be done to retrieve a shattered reputation.

The Skeleton
15 January 2016 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

The ten-minute cutdown version of this movie that is available at Harpodeon.com is the skeleton of most of William S. Hart's westerns of the era. It's the story of the Good Bad Man and his redemption through the ineluctable ramblings of fate and the smile of a good woman.

In this one, Hart plays an out-and-out gang leader. He's led into that redemption by the offer to make him sheriff so he can kill a rival under the guise of law -- the man who makes the offer figures realizes that at least one will wind up dead, which is all to the good. At least, so I imagine.

This was originally released at 50 minutes, so the meat of the movie is not gone. What you do have is Joe August's beautiful photography. It's more than enough for me.
