Death in Durango

Henry DeWitt Carey was a prominent lawyer in the Bronx, and later became a Judge in the New York Supreme Court. His son, Henry DeWitt Carey II, began studying law at New York University, intending to follow in his father’s footsteps. Unfortunately for the law, but fortunately for movie fans, the young boy got a bad case of pneumonia, and while away from college recovering from his illness, he somehow caught the acting bug.

Motion pictures were just being invented, and all the action was in New York City and at Thomas Edison’s studio in New Jersey. Carey began working in 1908 for the Biograph Company, moving to Hollywood with the Biograph Company when Edison, who wanted to control all of the motion picture production in America, began legal fights with the studios in New York.

Acting as Harry Carey, the young fellow became popular in a series of silent two-reel cowboy adventures  as a lovable bad guy called Cheyenne Harry. Two reelers were about twenty minutes long. Each reel of film could record between 9 and 11 minutes of action, depending on how fast the cameraman turned the crank that advanced the film past the lens.

When movies with sound came into being, Harry was a bit too old to play leading man parts, but his rugged good looks and pleasing personality made him a favorite character actor in cowboy adventures. In this story he revives his identity as Cheyenne Harry, but instead of having an outlaw past, he is a retired marshal. When he wanders into Durango, he discovers that a bad guy that he has run into in the past has all of the town folk in fear.

Cheyenne Harry soon crosses paths with the bad guy from his past, and they swear to each other that by sundown only one of them will be alive. Which one? I’m rooting for Cheyenne Harry, how about you? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
