Stuntman-turned-actor Billy Sullivan performs several awesome feats of strength in the low-budget actioner The Gallant Fool. Sullivan is cast as millionaire's son Billy Banner, who heads to the mythical country of Valdonia to collect a debt in his father's behalf. Instead, he goes the "Prisoner of Zenda" route, posing as the Valdonian prince to foil the evil schemes of the actual monarch, Crown Prince Boris (Ferdinand Schumann-Heink). He also puts down a revolution and wins the undying love of the gorgeous Princess Iris (Hazel Deane). With a little more money and effort, The Gallant Fool might actually been worthy of its leading man.
