But wires aren’t the the only thing crossed when Meade’s acid-tongued housekeeper, Lily (Diller), suspecting that he’s having an affair, flies into spy mode to protect Meade’s loving wife Martha (Marjorie Lord, TV’s Make Room for Daddy).

Wagon Tracks is a film brimming with adventure, romance and frontier justice, starring the king of the silent film westerns, William S. Hart (Wild Bill Hickok, Tumbleweeds).

Buckskin Hamilton (Hart) is out for justice and close on the heels of the outlaws that gunned down his younger brother in cold blood. Set in 1850, with the great Gold Rush as a backdrop, Wagon Tracks takes the viewer on an adventure across the wide open spaces of the untamed west.

In 1919, the year of its release, the Los Angeles Times said of Wagon Tracks, “The great desert screen epic is with us at last,” and called C. Gardner Sullivan’s screenplay “a masterpiece.” Now, future generations will have the opportunity to judge for themselves with this newly minted version, featuring an original score written and performed by Andrew Earle Simpson.
