Produced and directed by Harry Garson, this silent Western starred former gridiron hero Maurice Lefty Flynn, a popular action player of the day whose off-screen reputation matched that of a future star who shared his last name -- Errol Flynn. In Breed of the Border, Flynn played Circus Lacey, a drifter who saves Ethel Slocum (Dorothy Dwan) from the unwanted advances of Red Lucas (Joe Bennett). Not only that, but when Sheriff Wells (Frank Hagney) frames Ethel's father (Milton Ross) for robbing the Inspiration Gold Mine, Circus tracks down the real culprit -- Red Lucas. Flynn, whose screen career did not outlast the decade, was briefly married to Metro star Viola Dana.
