Movie Details

This minor silent Western from small-time Approved Pictures was Jean Arthur's fourth film and the second of 10 program Westerns she would make while still an unknown brunette starlet. The film starred Buddy Roosevelt, a minor cowboy lead who enjoyed a brief popularity in the hinterlands. Roosevelt plays Buddy Walters (he was always "Buddy" something or other), a cowboy falsely accused of a crime actually committed by nasty Al Richmond. Providing a few moments of love interest, Jean Arthur managed to stay reasonably out of the fray. The director of this film, Reginald Barker, had helmed some of William S. Hart's earliest successes. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
