| A Good Son
Broncho Billy Anderson and his partner rob a store out west. Later, he discovers it is his father's store.

The short films that Anderson starred in, produced and often directed were extremely popular and helped to establish the western movie as a genre that flourished for half a century. They ranged from knockabout comedies through dark tragedies. This is one that showed the redemption of a bad man -- a theme that would become the standard story for Anderson's successor as the leading cowboy star, William S. Hart. Anderson is clearly a skilled movie actor, relying more on doing things than waving his hands about, although there are a couple of overplayed scenes at moments of great character stress. Add in the usual impeccable camera-work and a well-restored print form the BFI and the result is a still-watchable movie.
