Synopsis by Hal Erickson
As was often the case in the pre-1920 period, the title of this four-reel Universal drama was far more lurid than the film's content. Hobart Bosworth, who also co-directed, starred as a two-fisted minister who aims to knock the fear of God into a wide-open mining town. Coming along for the ride is the minister's young wife, played by Jane Novak (one of Bosworth's favorite co-stars). So dedicated to his mission is the hero that he is willing to allow his wife her freedom when she proves to be unfaithful. Among the supporting players in Scarlet Skin was rodeo star Hart Hoxie, who later gained fame as a movie cowboy hero under his given name of Jack Hoxie.
