With Tom Mix already having explored Arabia, it was only natural that Fox's other cowboy star, Buck Jones, should visit the mythical kingdom of Belgravia. The vehicle was The Cowboy and the Countess, in which Jones played a carefree range devil (as the film's press material put it), who rescues visiting Countess Justina of Belgravia (Helena D'Algy) from a car wreck. Visiting Belgravia with their Wild West show, Jones and his horse Wild Eagle grab yet another opportunity to save Her Highness, this time from the scheming Duke de Milos. A well-known concert singer, Helena D'Algy had made her screen debut in the Pauline Frederick drama Let Not man Put Asunder (1924). She looked good in period costumes and was highly visible in romantic vehicles such as Confessions of a Queen (1925) and Don Juan (1926).
