Description by OLDIES.com:

Barely escaping a deputy's posse, notorious desperado Draw Egan flees to the town of Yellowtail. Posing as "William Blake," he convinces town reformer Matt Buckton to hire him as the new sheriff. Tough-as-nails "Blake" cleans up the town in no-time flat, all the while falling for Buckton's pretty daughter, Myrtle. Just when redemption and the chance for an honest life with a good woman seem possible, Arizona Joe, a former member of Draw Egan's gang, shows up in town with blackmail on his mind. Sheriff "Blake" must either allow Arizona Joe and his outlaw gang to bleed the town dry, or be exposed as Draw Egan, a wanted fugitive with a price on his head.

William S. Hart began as a highly acclaimed Shakespearean actor on Broadway who entertained no aspiration for movie acting prior to age 49. A major western buff, he purchased Billy The Kid's pistols and boasted friendships with both Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. Partnering with producer Thomas Ince in 1915, Hart went on to star in and direct dozens of memorable westerns such as this fine motion picture.

Bonus: Love, Speed and Thrills (1915) with Mack Swain, Minta Durfee, Chester Conklin, Billy Gilbert, Charley Chase.

Product Description:

Hart is the rough, tough leader of an outlaw gang. He ends up in a little western village and becomes sheriff, even falling in love. Everything is going well until his old comrade shows up and conspires to expose him, destroying all the good that he has done. Silent film with organ score.

Plot Synopsis:

A silent western with music and directed by star William S. Hart. A rough-and-tumble gunslinger enjoys the anarchic pleasure of his frontier town. But when this outlaw later has a badge pinned to his shirt, he must not only change his ways, but restore order to a place that knows more about whiskey and six-guns than law and lawmen.
