Performers, Cast and Crew:
Silent era great Hart is a macho outlaw who takes the time to save a child while escaping from the law. The Kino release also includes "His Bitter Pill," a Mack Sennett short spoofing Hart's legendarily wooden screen persona.
Description by Image Entertainment:
In "The Toll Gate" (1920, 73 min.), William S. Hart stars as Black Deering, a gunfighter and outlaw who, upon escaping from the authorities, flees into the wilderness. Hiding in the cabin of an abandoned woman and her young child, Deering finally finds the possibility of redemption he never dared dream of. His only problem: two posses on his trail--and they want blood. Also included on this DVD is Mack Sennett's famous western parody "His Bitter Pill" (1916, 20 min.), done in the inimitable Keystone style and viciously lampooning the noble cowboy.
