Synopsis in German
William S. Hart war der grosse Westernheld des frühen amerikanischen Stummfilms, der am Ende der Filme nach gelöstem Konflikt regelmässig in die weite Landschaft davon ritt. In dem Film BRANDING BROADWAY, den das Museum of Modern Art in New York restauriert hat, begibt er sich als Cowboy nach New York und arbeitet als Bodyguard für den verzogenen Sohn eines reichen Eisenbahnmagnaten. Die sehr unterhaltsame Komödie, die Hart selbst inszeniert hat, zeigt ihn von seiner besten Seite. (Förderverein Filmkultur Bonn)

Reviews in German: «Bob Sands and some of his cowboys ride into an Arizona town to have a good time. When they find that the town has gone dry, they start to tear it wide open, but the Law and Order League is on the job and ship Bob east on the passenger train. Bob decides to keep on going, and answers an advertisement for a strong-minded man to keep the son of a railroad magnate out of mischief. Bob takes the job and has a lively time along the Great White Way, but in the end, he throws up the job and goes west with his new-found wife, tired of the artificial life.» – The Moving Picture World, 21.12.1918, p.1389, zitiert nach Giornate del cinema muto, Pordenone 2006
