Introducing, in glorious fuzzy, silent, black and white!
Ten seconds of action with Texas in "The White Squaw" (1920). This film, despite the unfortunate title, has absolutely nothing to do with Native Americans.
It is about moonshiners and revenue agents. Moonshiners are folks who make illegal grain alcohol (moonshine). In good melodramatic style, the sister of a
suspected moonshiner falls for a revenue agent. But will she betray her own blood? In this scene, Texas has discovered that moonshiners are about to
ambush her love interest.
She grabs her rifle and races to the rescue!
