~Plot Synopsis~
The stern William S. Hart was wearing out his welcome by the early 1920s, at least according to the
review of his films. Hart would not give up his austere, almost mythical view of the West, his innate
sentimentality, not to mention the demand for a romantic story-line despite advancing years. His
popularity was slipping, and there was talk that Paramount wouldn't renew his contract after Travelin'
On. Hart did three more films for the company, however, but was unable to regain his former popularity.
This time Hart's enigmatic drifter incurs the enmity of a preacher (James Farley) when both men fall for
the same woman, the wife of the saloon owner (Ethel Grey Terry). Hart saves the woman from the
lecherous preacher and becomes her protector from afar. When her husband is arrested for robbing the
stage (to pay for a new church, no less), Hart takes the blame rather than see the woman he loves the
widow of a murderer. Sentenced to hang, he manages to escape the noose in the nick of time and goes
"Travelin' On."
