Buck Jones Scores Again -- October 15, 2021

Moving Picture World, 22-October-1921

Buck Jones started out as Fox Film Corporation's second-tier cowboy star, after Tom Mix. He went on to have a strong career, well into the talkie era. I think he deserves his own series. Bar Nothing is a good title.
