~The Breed of Men~
~Plot Synopsis~
Roaming cowpuncher "Careless" Carmody (William S. Hart) becomes sheriff of the new town of Chloride,
Arizona after losing his money and horse in a crooked faro game arranged by Wesley B. Prentice (Bert
Sprotte), president of the Arizona Ranch Lands Company, which sells land with no titles to unsuspecting
settlers and then resells the land to others. Careless rescues new settler Ruth Fellows (Seena Owen) from
a riotous Mexican and devotes great attention to her in the weeks following. Misled by Prentice who he
thinks is honest, Careless serves Ruth with papers ordering her off her property and she shoots him in the
shoulder. Aroused to action, Careless follows Prentice to his heavily guarded home in the suburbs of
Chicago, and with the help of some companions from the stockyards, kidnaps him back to Chloride where
he saves Prentice from a lynch mob and makes him pay back everything he owes. In the end, Careless and
Ruth marry. Not one of Hart's better vehicles, Breed of Men, in the words of critic Louis Reeves Harrison,
"lacked that essential element of drama -- suspense."
