Sandy Burke of the U-Bar-U


The good hearted cowboy Sandy Burke (Louis Bennison), and his Appaloosa horse “Pie,”  have their hands full breaking up bar fights, saving an orphan, bailing out a desperate widow, catching cattle rustlers and wooing the ranchman’s daughter in this tale set in the wild west. The long horn cattle seen in the film were brought from a western ranch by train to roam the meadows at Betzwood and lend authenticity to the scenes.

This film is one of  two Betzwood feature length films to survive completely intact.

Betzwood Film Company, 1918. Directed by Ira M. Lowry. Featuring Louis Bennison, J. Allen Dunn, Virginia Lee, Alphonse Ethier, H.H. Pattee, Echlin Gayer, Nadia Gary, Lucy Beaumont, Phil Sanford, Wilson Bayley.
