Hell's Heroes is the version that was filmed in Bodie, CA. :) I love its ending.

Hells Heroes, I'll have to see if I can find that. I live near Bodie and know someone whose grandfather was born there.

That was my favorite version as well... Charles Bickford, Raymond Hatton, and Fred Kohler. Craggy faces all. And each with an unnerving sense of real menace, which made that version more powerful, as it played out. Harsh and hard-edged, without a single shred of Hollywood gloss.
Another early-talkie western gem was “Law and Order” with Harry Carey Jr.’s father.
