Winners of the West (lost Western film serial; 1921)
Winners of the West is a lost 18 chapter serial from 1921 that is based on the Fremont expedition in 1849.
Based on the Fremont expedition, this serial follows Fremont's trail and attempts to tell the story of his travels through Oklahoma, aided by a mysterious Mexican . Not much else is known about the plot - not even whether or not the characters of George Standish and the Mexican were meant to be one and the same.
This serial was actually an effort by William Lord Wright to dodge the sensor and was produced by Art Acord and scripted first by Ford Beebe and then Robert Dillon. Nobody took the trouble to research the Fremont expedition and the sensors didn't even notice the violence!
