Silent screen cowboy Buffalo Bill, Jr. both starred in and directed (under his real name, Jay Wilsey) this extremely low-budget western produced by the legendary Robert J. Horner. Buffalo Bill, Jr. plays Bill Merritt, a cowboy who falls for lovely Jean Wells (Edna Aslin), the daughter of Borderville's richest citizen (Raymond B. Wells). The town's bully (Allen Holbrook) also wants the girl, and her father basically tells both suitors that anyone with at least $100,000 has a chance. In the end, Merritt wins the girl, not by producing the cash, but after rescuing her from a kidnapping. Lensed near San Diego, California, Trails of Adventure was the final film produced by the famously amateurish Horner, who died in an automobile accident days before filming was to have commenced. Buffalo Bill, Jr. took over direction himself and did such a bad job of it that even Horner would have been proud.
