Movie Info

Cowboy hero William S. Hart tries something altogether different in this film. He plays Hairpin Harry Dutton, a burglar who is sent to prison. He spends his incarceration dreaming of his pretty young wife (Juanita Hansen) and son and making firm resolutions for the day he gets released. But when he finally gets out, his plans are dashed -- his friend (Walter Long) informs him that his wife has divorced him. Not only that -- she has married the policeman who arrested him. Angrily, the former burglar plans to seek revenge, but when he sees his son, he realizes his actions would be pointless and wrong. So, leaving his ex-wife with her new husband, he starts off on a new life, taking his son with him. While well-received, this film did not encourage Hart to abandon his Western roots very often.
