American western star Ken Maynard's first starring vehicle -- filmed on a shoestring budget at California's St. Francis Dam -- $50,000 Reward was a not too exciting tale of a cowboy who inherits a piece of valuable property and is quickly besieged by a money-hungry villain. To generate some interest in the all-too-familiar proceedings, producer-director Clifford Elfelt hired six former Ziegfeld Follies girls and a young black buck-and-wing dancer named Ananias Berry, all of whom were thrown into the pot with nary an explanation.
