Ma Potter and Her Law of Bullets, or, The Sins of the Son
In the 1920’s, Bob Custer was a cowboy riding the western range, competing in rodeos when they came to town. When motion picture making moved from New York and New Jersey to California, he discovered that acting in silent motion pictures as a cowboy paid a lot more money than punching cows every day, and it wasn’t nearly as hard on the body as being a real cowboy.
Bob Custer made a fine living in silent westerns and even attained movie star fame, but when sound was added to moving pictures, he quickly faded because of a combination of two things that worked against him. First, he wasn’t working for one of the movie companies that became very successful and could spend the huge amounts of money on a production, and second, when sound came to cowboy westerns, the singing cowboy was created, and Bob Custer couldn’t sing.
He only made two more movies after this one, and then went to college, got a degree in engineering and became a building inspector for the city of Los Angeles, and then Newport Beach, California. In this classic cowboy story, he is Marshal Bruce Manning of Pleasant Valley.
Pleasant Valley is cattle ranching territory and until now, although the land belongs to the government, there were no restrictions and the cattle ranchers could let their cattle roam the valley freely. Now the government is allowing homesteaders to begin farming plots of land. When farmer Ma Potter’s unarmed son is shot in the back by a drunken rancher’s son, she promises a bullet for a bullet, as the farmers go on the attack against the ranchers to avenge her son. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
