Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Produced and directed by low-budget entrepreneur Ward Lascelle, this obscure Western starred Lester Cuneo, an also-ran Western hero who had begun his career supporting Tom Mix in the 1910s. Cuneo played a young cowboy who joins a gang of cattle rustlers. More a Robin Hood character than a brutal bandit, Lester reforms for the sake of his kid sister. Playing only the hinterlands, the Cuneo Westerns were not successful, a circumstance that led to the veteran actor's November 1, 1925 suicide. Hearts of the West contains one of the earliest appearance by future B-Western villain Charles King.
