Based on a 1921 short story, Baa, Baa Black Sheep, by the prolific Wilbur C. Tuttle, this independently produced silent Western starred Neal Hart, a distant cousin of William S. Hart, as Rex Carson, a young rancher who turns highwayman in an attempt to protect the sheep farmers from the ubiquitous cattlemen's association. The plot was one of the most enduring clich├ęs in Westerns of the 1920s. Black Sheep was produced by Louis Chaudet and Paul Hurst (who also directed) and released on the states rights market by Pinnacle Pictures.
