Description by OLDIES.com:

Thousands of homesteaders in covered wagons anxiously await the cannon shot that will launch the Oklahoma Land Rush - the greatest land give-away in history. Cattleman Don Carver intends to win the magnificent Box K Ranch. Crooked speculators covet the property and frame Dan for claim-jumping. Arrested by the U.S. Calvalry, Carver must find a way to break out of the stockade, if he is to get back into the race.

William S. Hart began as a highly acclaimed Shakespearean actor on Broadway who entertained no aspiration for movie acting prior to age 49. A major western buff, he purchased Billy The Kid's pistols and boasted friendships with both Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson. Partnering with producer Thomas Ince in 1915, Hart went on to star in and direct dozens of memorable westerns.The superior style and quality of these films is evident in the beautifully designed intercards, the magnificent location shots and the realistic costumes and sets. In this feature, the army of homesteaders with their covered wagons and their horses spread out across the vast Oklahoma plains are depicted in spectacular fashion making Tumbleweeds a true western classic.

This version includes William S. Hart's 1939 spoken introduction from the 1939 Astor Pictures' release.

Product Description:

William S. Hart's last western is about the opening of the Cherokee strip in Oklahoma. A highlight is the land-rush scene, one of the great spectacles in silent films. Contains a music track and a special introduction by Hart himself, which turned out to be the actor's only speaking role.

Plot Synopsis:

Depicting the historical opening of the Cherokee Strip in 1889, this classic Western tells the tale of cattle, love, marriage, settlers and suspicious schemes.
