Perhaps as a result of observing the audience's intense wish to believe in the reality of professional wrestling's dramas, the producer and star of this film, himself a professional wrestler, has chosen to tell a story about a world in which all the stunts are for real. Here, Hammerhead Jones is a 19th-century pro who refuses to participate in "death matches," which continue until one of the participants is injured and becomes helpless. However, he is soon roped into the biggest bout of them all so that he can continue his support for an orphanage.
