Veteran western performers Harry Carey and Marguerite Clayton appeared in three films together from 1923-1924: Desert Driven, Tiger Thompson and, perhaps their best, Canyon of the Fools. Produced by Film Booking Office, this action-packed silent western overcame a miniscule budget by throwing stock footage of a flood into an otherwise common story about a bandit reformed by the love of a good woman. Both leads had done this already then-stale plot many times before, Carey as Universal's top western ace in the 'teens (until his position was usurped by Hoot Gibson), and Clayton opposite early cowboy star Broncho Billy Anderson.
