The Bull-Dogger (1921) [Lost Film, Fragments Survive]




Starring:
 

Storyline
Directed by Richard E. Norman. "A virile story of the golden west, featuring Bill Pickett, the Black hero of the Mexican bull ring, in death defying feats of courage and skill, such as wild horse racing, roping and tying wild steers. The picture also includes fancy and trick riding by Black cowboys and cowgirls and bull dogging and throwing with their teeth, the wildest steers on the Mexican border. This is the first feature picture of its kind, and proves conclusively that the Black cowboy is capable of doing anything the white cowboy does." - excerpt from the Exhibitor's Herald
