Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It's too bad that most of Ken Maynard's silent westerns for First National apparently no longer exist. From all accounts, Gun Gospel was one of the best of the batch. Maynard plays one of a trio of mountaineers who've been falsely accused of rustling. Fatally wounded in a skirmish with the actual crooks, the oldest of the mountaineers extracts a promise from Maynard that he'll never again use a gun. Our hero is as good as his word, using fancy rope tricks to subdue the villains. Inevitably, however, Maynard is forced to wield a gun to protect the heroine (Virginia Brown Faire) from the bad guys.
