Based on an original story by the prolific L. V. Jefferson, this minor silent Western featured Colorado cowboy Pete Morrison as a ranch hand falsely accused of robbing the stage. With the assistance of his girlfriend, Barbara Starr, Morrison goes in search of the true culprit, the slick Bruce Gordon. Produced in assembly-line fashion by Universal and directed by veteran comic Milburn Morante, The Escape, like almost all Morrison Westerns, was thoroughly geared to audiences in the hinterlands. Morrison survived the sound revolution but was reduced to playing henchmen. He retired in 1935 to take up ranching near his hometown of Morrison, Colorado.
