Important note: This is not a film review. It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
In 1876, a band of buffalo hunters assembles at Sprague's Trading Post and is joined by Tom Doan ( Jack Holt ), fresh from a Kansas farm. At the post, Tom meets, and falls in love with, Milly Fayre ( Lois Wilson ), the stepdaughter of Randall Jett ( Noah Beery ), the leader of a gang of notorious outlaws who make a brutal living robbing buffalo hunters. Milly and Tom are separated, and there is an Indian uprising sparked by the irresponsible slaughtering of the buffalo herds by white adventurers. Jett is killed by his own men, and Milly escapes, attempting to make her way back to civilization. She is chased by a party of hostile Indians and falls in front of a herd of stampeding buffalo. Tom rescues her. The buffalo hunters subdue the Indians, and Tom and Milly head back to civilization.
This 1925 silent western/drama was based from the novel The Thundering Herd by Zane Grey, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, starring Jack Holt, Lois Wilson, Noah Beery Sr., Charles Ogle and Gary Cooper in an uncredited role.
