An undistinguished silent B-Western, The Grey Vulture starred personable newcomer Ken Maynard as Bart Miller, a drifter who mistakenly believes that he killed a man in a fight. Heading for the hills, Miller encounters -- of all things -- a stagecoach filled with a bevy of chorus girls. Escorting the girls to their destination, Bart makes the delightful acquaintance of yet another lovely girl, Betty Taylor (Hazel Deane aka Hazel Maye), the daughter of the ranch owner. Miller earns the girl's eternal gratitude by catching the ranch foreman (Boris Bullock), who had absconded with the cattle. To make Miller's day even more perfect, the sheriff (Fred Burns) arrives with the news that the man he thought he had killed has recovered. To publicize Ken Maynard's first series as a star, producer Clifford S. Elfelt hired six former Ziegfeld Follies girls, who appeared -- uneasily -- in all five Maynard/Davis films. The girls were variously billed as The Hollywood Beauty Sextette and The Six Famous Beauties, but they were merely window dressing.
