Movie Info

Tumbleweeds marked silent-screen cowboy legend William S. Hart's return to the screen after a long absence, and it was also his swan song, as Hart's brand of individualism and moody morality gave way to the more action-oriented films of Tom Mix and the epic westerns of The Covered Wagon and The Iron Horse. Tumbleweeds takes place in 1899 when the Cherokee Strip was opened up to homesteaders. When that happens, Don Carver (Hart), the range boss for the Box K Ranch, finds himself out of work.

The film is remarkable for several reasons, foremost among them the awe-inspiring spectacle of greed in action that is the land rush.

Superior western and a key film in Hart's filmography.

... more realistic portrayals remain more in tune with modern day anti-heroes than the more popular cowboy heroes that appeared on screen before the advent of John Wayne

Audience Reviews for Tumbleweeds

Starring William S. Hart, silent western star. The villains aren't subtle, but many tried and true elements that are standard in westerns are present here. These elements were tried and found to be true in Hart pics. The romance between the cowboy and his girl has some sweet touches of comedy. The cowboy's buddy is a classic type. The racing horses, trio of musicians who briefly appear to "sing" the title song, and the triumph of good over evil are all satisfying in this well developed early example of a silent western.
