~The Devil's Double~
1916
~William S. Hart~
~Plot Synopsis~
"Bowie" Blake (William S. Hart) is a gambler in a mining camp. One day, an artist, Van Dyke Tarleton
(Robert McKim) comes to town with his wife, Naomi (Enid Markey). He sees Bowie and decides he is
perfect as a model for Lucifer in his latest painting. At first he refuses to pose, but Naomi talks him into
it. Tarleton sees that Bowie is attracted to his wife, and purposely insults her just to get the right evil
look in his eyes. But finally Bowie, whose feelings have become too much for him, quits. He returns to
the Tarleton cabin, however, only to find Van Dyke dead and Naomi being attacked by two bandits. He
makes short work of the bandits, but Naomi has lost her mind from the attack. It take months for her
memory to return, and when it does, she heads for the East, with a promise from Bowie that he will
come for her when he has made good.
