Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
An above-average silent western starring Harry Carey, Human Stuff centers on the ubiquitous feud between sheep herders and cattlemen. An Eastern boy (Carey) is shipped West to tend the family's sheep ranch. Carey's presence angers the neighboring cattle ranchers, whose leader (Charles LeMoyne) resorts to kidnapping to get his point across. Portraying Carey's millionaire father, German-born character actor Rudolph Christians made a rare western appearance in this film, one of the corpulent star's last. Christians died suddenly of a heart attack during the filming of Erich Von Stroheim's Foolish Wives (1921), and his remaining scenes were filmed with Robert Edeson.
