Feat. Live Accompaniment from Cliff Retallick!

Clouds of dust, the clattering of hooves, hundreds of covered wagons huddled together, and BOOM! The cannon is fired. Settlers are released, clamoring for their first slice of the American West, in a flurry of chaos and anticipation. It’s 1893 on the Kansas-Oklahoma border, the site of the Cherokee Strip Land Run, and Don—William S. Hart in his final role—a cowhand and self-described tumbleweed, torn by love and ideology, embroiled in legal troubles, is plagued by the twin temptations of security and potential greed, born from finally settling down.

Presented in a gorgeous 2006 polyester exhibition print, this is a rare must-see for lovers of American Western Cinema!

Dir. King Baggot, 1925, 35mm, 78 min.
