Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Produced by film pioneer Fred J. Balshofer, this minor Western attempted to turn veteran supporting actor Fred Church into a viable Western star. Church, however, was no longer in the bloom of youth and presented no threat whatsoever to the likes of Tom Mix and Hoot Gibson. Along with Westerns produced by such poverty row entrepreneurs as Jesse J. Goldburg, Lester F. Scott, Jr. and Robert J. Horner, Stacked Cards helped create a glut on the market that would seriously threaten the entire genre. The film was photographed by veteran Ernest Haller, who would go on to receive an Academy Award for Gone with the Wind (1939).
