A low-budget outfit calling itself Hollywood Producers' Finance Association bought an old Buck Jones Western from Fox, put Monte Montague in clothes resembling Jones', hired leading lady Ena Gregory for a scene or two, re-edited the old footage with the new and presto! A brand new Western entitled One Man Trail could be delivered to small-town theaters whose audiences would presumably be none the wiser. Not one of the more scintillating of actors, Western or otherwise, Monte Montague was a former Ringling Brothers acrobat who had doubled Elmo Lincoln in The Adventures of Tarzan (1921). Usually playing a mere member of the posse or providing some inept "comedy relief," Montague would continue to appear in B-Westerns until the early 1950s.
