Produced by Gower Gulch company Action Pictures, this low-budget silent Western starred Buffalo Bill, Jr. (aka Jay Wilsey) as a cowboy falsely accused of killing his prospector father (Robert Fleming). About to be lynched, Buffalo is saved by a dance-hall hostess (Alma Rayford) and goes in search of the real culprit. Owned by Lester F. Scott, Jr., Action Pictures specialized in supplying streamlined Westerns to the neighborhood or rural grind-houses. With the competent Richard Thorpe holding the megaphone and scripts supplied by dependables such as Betty Burbridge, the little Westerns were generally well-made without attempting to break new ground. In addition to Buffalo Bill, Jr., Scott also stabled Wally Wales and Buddy Roosevelt.
