Six film shorts starring G.M. “Broncho Billy” Anderson, almost two hours of western fun! In Porter's startling early film THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY (1903), Anderson played several roles (among them, the train passenger shot by bandits as he tries to escape). The success of that film prompted Anderson to begin writing, directing and starring in his own series of Westerns. In 1907 he and a friend founded Essanay Film Manufacturing Co., destined to be one of the predominant early film studios. Anderson gained enormous popularity in hundreds of Western shorts, playing the first real cowboy hero, "Broncho Billy." This DVD includes: Broncho Billy’s Fatal Joke (1914), His Regeneration (1915), Naked Hands (1918), Broncho Billy and the Greaser (1914), Broncho Billy’s Sentence (1915) and The Making of Broncho Billy (1913).
