Heritage of the Desert
In the tradtion of producer Harry Sherman's earlier Zane Grey westerns for Paramount, Heritage of the Desert features an essentially non-western star in the lead. Donald Woods plays John Abbott an eastern man-about-town who heads west to claim an inheritance. Crooked attorney Henry Holderance (C. Henry Gordon) contrives to have Abbott shot down before he ever arrives at his destination, but Abbott survives his wounds thanks to the tender ministrations of Miriam Naab (Evelyn Venable), daughter of friendly rancher Andrew Naab (Robert Barrat). Realizing that he's going to have to toughen himself up to survive in the west, Abbott does so, eventually paying Holderance back for his treachery. Heritage of the Desert was previously filmed in 1924, with Bebe Daniels, Ernest Torrence, Noah Beery and Lloyd Hughes. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
