The Little Buckaroo (1928) - Still Lost ?
7 September 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

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 the desert, Red Hepner ( Buzz Barton ) and his pal, Toby Jones ( Milburn Morante ), find by the body of a prospector a canteen on which a scratched message indicates that the dead man had been robbed and murdered and requests that the finder take care of a surviving daughter, Ann Crawford ( Peggy Shaw ). Red and Toby, accompanied by Jack Pemberton ( Kenneth McDonald ), an old friend, proceed to Dugan's halfway house after rescuing Ann Crawford during a stage holdup. Pemberton marries Ann to prevent the ruffians at the halfway house from molesting her, but he promises to give her an annulment in the next town. At Ohi, Red and Toby overhear Luke Matthews ( Al Ferguson ), owner of the stage-line (whom they suspect to be Jim Crawford's murderer), plan a fake holdup of the stage. Though their first attempt to prevent the holdup is unsuccessful, Red and Toby later capture the stagecoach driver (Baxter) and the bandits and bring them to Ohi. There Matthews, having accused Pemberton of murdering Crawford, has turned Pemberton over to a lynching party. Baxter and the bandits admit that Matthews is their leader; the authorities exchange Pemberton for Matthews; and Toby and Red ride off while Pemberton settles down with Ann.

This 1928 western was produced by the Film Booking Offices of America, starring Buzz Barton and Peggy Shaw. The survival status of The Little Buckaroo (1928) is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
