The Light of the Western Stars is a lost[1] 1918 American silent Western film starring Dustin Farnum and Winifred Kingston. Charles Swickard directed.[2]


As described in a film magazine,[3] discontented cow puncher Gene Stewart (Farnum) makes a bet that he will marry the next woman who comes to town. Majesty Hammond (Kingston), the sister of a successful ranch owner, arrives that night and Gene in a drunken revel threatens old Padre Marcos (Swickard) with death unless he marries them. He completely cows the young woman into submission and, when he finds out who she is, he sheepishly takes her to the house of her brother's fiance, and then leaves after apologizing for frightening her. She buys the ranch of a Mexican desperado and needs Gene to run it for her, but he has gone with a gang of Mexicans and is too drunk to be appealed to by anyone but Majesty. She finally persuades him to return. He has advised Bonita (Boardman) to take refuge in the crags when she is about to be accused of the murder of a man who fought for her. Majesty does not understand the relationship between Gene and Bonita. When the desperado Don Carlos attacks the ranch, Gene saves Majesty from the Mexicans. Majesty sees Gene talking to Bonita and becomes jealous. Gene is taken captive by Don Carlos and is condemned to death. When Majesty decides to return to the east, the old priest reproaches her for her behavior. Filled with regret over her feelings, Majesty gets a reprieve for Gene and a warrant for Carlos, and saves Gene from death just in time.
