Ruth of the Range
Ruth of the Range is a 1923 American adventure film serial starring Ruth Roland that was the final feature created by scenarist Wilson Gillets for Pathe Productions. The movie had three directors: Ernest C. Warde, son of famed actor Frederick Warde, who was fired for filming too many close-ups of Roland; his replacement, W. S. Van Dyke, soon quit for another job; and Frank Leon Smith was hired to complete the serial. Gillets died during filming but before he had completed the script, leaving Smith to create his own story from existing footage. Roland left the feature before filming the final two chapters, so Smith filmed her final scenes using her stuntman, Bob Rose, wearing a wig.
