Stunt-man Yakima Canutt played the title-role in this slow-moving silent Western produced and directed by Benjamin F. Wilson for FBO release. Falsely accused of a robbery and on the run, Canutt discovers the hard way that the crime was actually committed by his no-good brother (Bert Sprotte). Slightly ham-fisted as an actor, Canutt went behind the camera after the changeover to sound and went on to basically invent the job description of stunt supervisor. He was honored with an Academy Award for his amazing body of work in 1966.
