Just as the butler is the standard red herring in an old-fashioned whodunit, the ranch foreman is usually up to no good in a silent western. In Man From God's Country, the ubiquitous foreman (Lew Meehan) is indeed a potential killer (luckily, he misses his target, lovely Dorothy Revier), blaming the dirty deed on nice cowboy William Fairbanks. Fairbanks, whose implied relationship to Douglas Fairbanks was a complete fabrication, did not survive the silent era as a star, but Revier later signed with Columbia Pictures and became known as "The Caviar of Poverty Row."
