Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Cecil B. DeMille's Producers Distributing Corporation released this routine silent western starring brunette Mabel Ballin as an aspiring singer who marries the church organist (Andre deBeranger). He turns out to be a heel, unfortunately, and Ballin turns to the rough-hewn Modoc Bill (Forrest Stanley) for comfort. None of the leads felt all that at home in westerns -- least of all the Australian-born deBeranger (AKA George Beranger), who had played Lord Byron the previous year in Beau Brummel. Beauty and the Bandit was yet another western based on popular pulp writer Peter B. Kyne.
