If you see one silent western in your life, make it this one
21 August 2005 | by CowgirlieSee all my reviews

William S Hart was an experienced Shakspearian actor before he3 began his career as a movie actor, and his skill at expression through movement and posture is never more apparent then in this jewel of a movie. While most of Hart's peers in the world of western adventure were athletes who excelled at stunts in their movies, Hart's acting skills were his strongest suite. The sweeping epic begins with two old compadres seeing the changes in the Oklahoma territory, and when the Oklahoma land rush is about to begin, they are almost unintentionally caught up in the excitement. Hart is the hero we hope he will be, till the last frame. Upon seeing this film, I wished for a revival of this wonderful lost art form in movie making. Two thumbs up!
