Description by OLDIES.com:
Wallace Reid was one of Hollywood's first screen superstars, starring in such blockbusters as D.W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916). Excuse My Dust is actually a sequel to The Roaring Road (1919), and the role of the infant Toodles Walden Jr. is played by his real-life son, Wallace Reid Jr.
During the filming of The Valley of the Giants (1919), Reid was badly injured and given morphine so that he could continue working. His mounting dependency on narcotics, combined with heavy drinking, proved too much for the screen heartthrob and he died at the age of 31. Despite being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960, his story is the quintessential show-biz tragedy.
Excuse My Dust was one of the first films directed by legendary Sam Wood (1883-1949), who later made A Night at the Opera (1935) and A Day at the Races (1937) with the Marx Brothers, Our Town (1940), and Pride of the Yankees (1942). He received Oscar nominations for directing Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939), Kitty Foyle (1940) and Kings Row (1942) and is widely reported to have done some second-unit work on Gone With the Wind (1939). In 1960, he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
BONUS: Includes the 1913 silent film Speed Kings starring Mabel Normand, Ford Sterling, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle.
