The story ot "Sundown" tells ot the passing of the Old West. A group of cattlemen gather and discuss the encroachment ot home- stoaders who bavo been allotted quarter. sections of land by (he government. These "nosters," ns the cattlemen call them, are gradually crowding them out, leaving them little or no room for grazing their Immense herds. A committee confers with Theodore Roosevelt, president at that time, but is Informed that "nothing can stop tbe onruBh ot civilization." Returning to their homes the cattlemen decide that they must seek new pastures, and with their hearts breaking thoy gather their vast herds and make tho last and greatest drive In tha history of the world. Thousands of cattle trek across the plains and deserts ot the northern continont, finally crossing the Mexican border and settling there. It Is the tragic story of thta migration, forced upon the hardy old pioneers by- a relentless civilization that makes "Sundown," the most spectacular motion picture of the Old West ever filmed. I. R.
