Between Men was not your typical William S. Hart western. The story begins on Wall Street, as a stockbroker faces ruin at the hands of his romantic rival. Preparing himself for the worst, the broker reflects on a happier time two years earlier, when while stopping over in a frontier town he earned the undying friendship of mine-owner Bob White (Hart). Remembering that White promised to help him if ever he was in need, the broker wires White and invites him to come to New York. Once he's arrived in the Big Apple, White has no trouble differentiating between the Good Guys and the Bad Guys and proceeds to settle accounts with the broker's duplicitous rival. The notion of transplanting Bill Hart from the wide open spaces to the canyons of Manhattan would be successfully repeated in several subsequent films, most memorably in the 1919 Hart vehicle Branding Broadway.
