      Wild Women (1918) - Still Lost

      In order to raise money for one of the cowpunchers whose wife is in need of a costly operation, Cheyenne Harry ( Harry Carey ) convinces the cowboys of the Circle-L Ranch to take part in a San Francisco rodeo. After winning most of the prizes, Harry and the boys visit a Hawaiian-style cabaret to celebrate.

      Several Honolulu cocktails each finally prove too much for the cowboys, and even the gyrations of the grass-clad hula dancers cannot keep them awake. Harry dreams that he and his companions have been shanghaied and forced to scrub the deck. When the crew mutinies, Harry is cast ashore on an island, where he so enchants the Hawaiian queen ( Martha Mattox ) that she decides to marry him. Harry manages to elude the aging queen and is about to embrace the young and pretty princess ( Molly Malone ) when he wakes up. Swearing off Hawaiian cocktails, Harry and the cowboys return to the ranch.

      This 1918 silent western/comedy was directed by John Ford and starred Harry Carey. At the time of it's release, some city and state film censorship boards cut out the three first scenes of the young woman dancing on the stage and two close-ups of young woman dancing on a table. Tragically, Wild Women still remains a lost silent film.
