Good news, dear, I got the kid a job.

Or, "Could you take the kid to work with you today? Two of the actors in this film and one of the directors had daughters playing roles. Mary Jo Desmond(as Aggie Kirby), age 12, was the daughter of William Desmond who played Colonel Custer; Harriet Spencer(Bennet), the daughter of co-director Spencer Bennet was cast as a young townsgirl as was also Barbara Bushman, daughter of Ralph Bushman, who played Jeff Maitland (billed as Francis X. Bushman, Jr.)For those who haven't figured it out yet, "The Last Frontier, 1932" was a 12-chapter serial that was also edited into a 70-minute feature version, "The Black Ghost,1932." The feature version was for booking to theatres that did not play serials, a semi-common policy utilized by producers of early sound-era serials.
