    INFORMATION FROM IMDb


    Plot Summary
    Harry's bride is murdered at their wedding along with Harry's mother and father,
    and the good-hearted outlaw turns grimly malevolent.
    He leaves town, only to return one year later.
    One by one he stalks his wife's killers, dispatching them all until
    he finally sets his sights, mistakenly, on Sheriff Gale Thurman.
    The lawman bests Harry and keeps him hiding outside town in the wilderness.
    Straying into the same wilderness, the Sheriff's girlfriend is first overtaken by highwaymen,
    then rescued by Harry, only to be taken captive by Harry when he realizes who she is.
    At first threatening to harm the girl, Harry slowly falls in love with her,
    all while hostile Apaches attempt to kill them both. By the time the Sheriff tracks them down,
    a full-scale assault is under way, and the two men join forces.
    Harry realizes the Sheriff's innocence, but it is too late:
    the lawman is dead from his battle wounds, but he has saved his girlfriend - and Harry.

    Production
    Riders of Vengeance was released as a Universal Special feature in June 1919,
    a 60-minute silent film on six reels.
    It was part of the long-running "Cheyenne Harry" series of film featurettes.
    The story was an uncommon collaboration between the star
    Harry Carey and the director John Ford (with help from scenarist Eugene Lewis).
    Though it has an unusually high level of violence
    ("lots of killings", as Moving Picture World noted),
    critical reviews of the time lavishly praised both the story and film.
