Product Details

Back to God's Country Nell Shipman stars in this handsomely mounted James Oliver Curwood production as Dolores LeBeau, a child of nature on a voyage to the Arctic circle with her new husband, Peter Burke (Wheeler Oakman). En route, she discovers to her horror that the Captain, Rydal (Wellington Playter), is none other than the escaped prisoner who killed her father (Ralph Laidlaw). Something New Silent-screen action heroine Nell Shipman plays a writer in this mostly satirical Western that co-stars corpulent director Bert Van Tuyle as the film's less than impressive hero. Searching for "something new" to write about, Nell travels to Mexico where her father and his partner Sid Bickley (L. M. Wells) operate a mine. En route she makes the acquaintance of Bill (Van Tuyle), a modern Westerner who prefers his Maxwell automobile to the old-fashioned horse. And the car does do the trick when the girl is captured by Mexican bandito Agrilla Gorgez (Merril McCormick, here billed "William McCormack").
