~The Square Deal Man~
~Plot Synopsis~
In this William S. Hart picture, the cowboy star plays Jack O'Diamonds, a gun-toting gambler in a border
town. A minister (Milton Ross) convinces him and his partner Two Spot (Joseph J. Dowling) to quit
gambling since winning money from the average man causes women and children to suffer. On their last
night at cards, Jack is up against Colonel Ransome (J. Frank Burke). When Jack wins all of the Colonel's
money and his hacienda, the Colonel accuses him of cheating. Jack draws his gun and the lights go out.
When they come back on, the Colonel is dead and a couple of Mexicans are riding off. Jack sends for
Virginia, the Colonel's daughter (Mary MacIvor), with the intention of giving her the ranch. When she
arrives, he immediately falls in love with her and gives up his wild life to become the ranch's foreman.
Meanwhile, the Mexican who really committed the murder is plotting to convince Virginia that Jack
killed her father -- then she will send Jack away and the Mexican can run the ranch's cattle over the
borderline and kidnap the girl. But his plot, of course, is foiled and Jack and Virginia find happiness
