William S. Hart took a respite from his "good-badman" groove to play a preacher in Apostle of Vengeance. Ministering to one of the toughest towns in the West, Hart is determined never to rely upon physical force. But when forced into a showdown, he is sorely tempted to slap on the old six-shooters. Hart himself directed Apostle of Vengeance, with second-unit assistance from his faithful cohort Clifford Smith. Future stars John Gilbert and Jean Hersholt show up as extras, just as they did in Hart's Hell's Hinges (1916).
