Greek-born producer Anthony Xydias was behind this inexpensive silent Western, the title of which is somewhat misleading. The legendary Buffalo Bill Cody (played here by Roy Stewart) was merely a supporting character to young Cullen Landis playing Gordon Kent, a young trail guide escorting a wagon train through hostile territory. The film was inevitably compared to The Covered Wagon (1923), which was extremely successful, but Xydias obviously did not have the money to create such an epic -- most films were shot only in the hinterlands.
