~Between Men~
~Plot Synopsis~
Between Men was not your typical William S. Hart western. When wealthy stockbroker Gregg Lewiston
(House Peters) begins to financially ruin Ashley Hampdon (J. Barney Sherry) to force Hampdon to
pressure his daughter Lina (Enid Markey) into marrying him, Hampdon comes across a note from Bob
White (William S. Hart), a Western mine owner whom Hampdon helped years earlier to recover his
fortune, which offers White's assistance anytime and anywhere. After White, responding to Hampdon's
wire, comes to New York, Lewiston's partner, Rankin (Robert McKim), who helped to ruin Hampdon,
deceitfully offers to redress the wrong by giving White a tip on the market. With the help of detectives
and a dictaphone, White and Hampdon uncover the scheme of Lewiston and Rankin, and win a quarter of
a million dollars on the market, while Lewiston is nearly ruined. When Lewiston, at his club, accuses
White of trying to buy Lina, who earlier took offense at a remark of White's, White fights Lewiston, both
at the club and later in Lewiston's apartment. After Lewiston is shot in the arm by John Worth (A. Bert
Wesner), another enemy, White boards a train for home and is pleasantly surprised to find the contrite
Lina waiting for him on the observation platform. The notion of transplanting Bill Hart from the wide
open spaces to the canyons of Manhattan would be successfully repeated in several subsequent films,
most memorably in the 1919 Hart vehicle
Branding Broadway.
