Unfortunately, a good amount of this film has been lost to the ravages of time, but a local museum sells it. My only complaint is that the have added "The Ballad of Marshal Bill' over the soundtrack, instead of keeping the film in its pure sense. But you get to see some of the West's greatest lawmen re-enacting their feats, and it is such a treat.
This is an answer to "Beatign Back," Al Jennings' film about how he was 'driven to a life of crime'. Jennings' only claim to fame was that he was the most inept outlaw in Oklahoma's history, if not that of the West. We had some magnificent lawmen here in Oklahoma, and it's a pleasure to seem them on the screen.
In some cities, this outdrew "The Birth of A Nation," as Tilghman toured with the film, and he was still popular around the nation.
