Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hearts of Men was based on a story by James Oliver Curwood. At first glance, hero Cornelius Keefe seems to be a coward. And at second glance, too. But by reel five, the worm turns, and Keefe manages to solve a murder and thwart a high-stakes robbery. He then settles accounts with his bullying rival and claims the heroine as his bride. Nothing new here, though it was nice to see fading star Mildred Harris (the ex-Mrs. Charlie Chaplin) in a worthwhile role. The ingenue was played by pert Thelma Hill, better known to Laurel and Hardy fans as Stan's troublesome date in the 1928 2-reeler Two Tars.
