The West-Bound Limited (1923, B&W, Silent): Rugged young Johnny Buckley becomes an instant hero when he saves the life of Esther Miller, the only daughter of railroad tycoon Bernard Miller, when she is pinned by her horse on railroad tracks mere seconds before the thunderous arrival of Train 99, the very train that Johnny's father Henry works as the engineer. When romance blossoms between Johnny and Esther, Miller's closest adviser J. Lawrence Wilton becomes insanely jealous -- because he wants Esther for himself. When she spurns his advances, he resolves to sabotage the train, even if it means killing everyone on board, including Miller. Once again, Johnny is thrust into the role of hero, racing against the clock to save the people who mean the most to him from certain death.
A Corner In Wheat (1909, B&W, Silent): When a wealthy mogul corners the wheat market and raises the price of flour, he doesn't consider the impact it will have on those who cannot afford the increase. It takes an unexpected tragedy for him to realize the consequence of his actions.
