It resulted in serion* in ¿ury to one of the leading actors, Wil-
lam Thornton. Thc scene renreniitecl cattle duffers at work romi'liiig up scrubbers io the mountainous ec.mit ry. The effect the director wanted was the horsemen driving the cattle at full gallop doun the brow- of a hill, bil
ouetted against thc skyline. Leery-( thing went well until one wild bullu.k led the others into a stoney gulley and the daring horsemen st once made a wild gallop to head them off and pre- vent a stampede. William Thornton, Ans of the most daring horsemen in the company, led the way, but both horse and rider failed to kee (he drop of tome IO fett right in their path. Down went thc horse, throwing his rider heavily to the ground. When picked 1 up the actor was unconscious, with
a terrible gash in his head, from which the blood was flowing profusely. As the nearest doctor was 26 miles* away, Raymond Longford, the director, wlio hst had medical training, immediately called for the first aid box and in- serted four stitches in the actor's head.
, The company, although terribly con
earned at the Injury, st the same time felt elated st obtaining such a sensa- tional fall, which will add to the rea- lism of this thrilling picture."
