Description by OLDIES.com:

Born Sylvester Alphonse Metz in Germany, Richard Talmadge (1892-1981) was a boy acrobat before breaking into Hollywood moviemaking as a stuntman, reportedly doubling for superstar Douglas Fairbanks. Talmadge's strapping good looks and remarkable athleticism soon made him a leading man in the silent era, where he produced several of his own films. With the advent of sound, however, Talmadge - who never lost his German accent - simply utilized his expertise to become a noted stunt coordinator and second-unit director whose credits include such classics as Beau Geste (1939), How the West Was Won (1962), and the all-star James Bond spoof Casino Royale (1967).

Laughing at Danger (1924): Alan Remington is nursing a broken heart after discovering his beloved in the arms of another man. He is convinced that his diplomat father, Cyrus, has concocted a scheme to cheer him up by bringing some excitement into his life. Cyrus' revolutionary death ray has been stolen and he sends Alan in pursuit. He gamely chases after the crooks unaware that they are for real and using live ammo! Starring Richard Talmadge, Eva Novak, Joseph Gerard and Stanhope Wheatcroft.

Let's Go (1923): Devil-may-care Barry Macklin is the heir to the Macklin Cement Company. At the behest of his father, who's fed up with his irresponsible behavior, and with the police on his tail for his reckless driving, Barry journeys to the tiny town of Hillsboro, where a big paving contract is promised. Once there he uncovers political corruption, and becomes the quarry of a posse - all the while eluding capture by jumping across trains, climbing up buildings, and demonstrating his prowess driving automobiles, motorcycles, and even a horse-and-carriage.

The opening credits attest: "The amazing athletic 'stunts'" performed by Mr. Talmadge are actual, and are not achieved by means of 'doubles,' 'dummies,' or tricks of the camera. Starring Richard Talmadge, Eileen Perry, George Nicholas, Tully Marshal and Bruce Gordon.
