Produced by Gower Gulch company Action Pictures, this minor silent Western starred Buddy Roosevelt as a ranch foreman who rescues lovely Helen Calhoun (Elsa Benham) from a runaway carriage and her wastrel brother Ted (Sherry Tansey aka James Sheridan) from both the devil hop and a crooked gambler (Richard R. Neill). Usually a supporting character, mustachioed Hank Bell was awarded co-star billing this time around as a tough deputy sheriff helping Roosevelt catch the villain. Nothing out of the ordinary, Code of the Cow Country was directed with economy in mind by Oscar Apfel. A veteran stock company actor from Cleveland, Apfel earlier co-wrote and co-directed (with Cecil B. DeMille) The Squaw Man (1914), the first feature film to be produced entirely in Hollywood.
