About the Event

Marion Davies stars as an abused orphan who embarks on a road trip to the wilds of Arizona, in the hopes of saving a young boy from the orphanage by finding his father. Finally arriving out West, she finds shelter at a ranch housing a cowboy, and his two pals, who have both the sheriff and marauding bandits hot on their trail.

Described as a “part melodrama, part sentimental romance, part boisterous comedy, and part Western”, this film is a testament to Davies’ talent, as the core that holds the many threads together.

Introduced by Lara Gabrielle, author of Captain of Her Soul: The Life of Marion Davies

Directed by George W. Hill | Starring Marion Davies, Holbrook Blinn, and Harrison Ford

Preserved by the Library of Congress | Digital Restoration by Undercrank Productions

With live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick
