Pulp writer Bret Harte's The Idyll of Red Gulch was turned into a fine Harry Carey Western vehicle by producer Hunt Stromberg. Set during the California Gold Rush of '49, Carey plays Sandy, a prospector searching for the mother of his murdered partner's young children. She proves to be one Madame Le Blanc (Doris Lloyd) and is now in the employ of Latham (Lee Shumway), the man who killed her husband. After several close calls, Sandy finally gets his man when Latham is knocked overboard from a river boat and drowns. Repentant, Madame Le Blanc enters a convent. Former Mack Sennett star Harriet Hammond played the ingenue in this film, a young girl who Sandy rescues from the clutches of the evil Latham.
