The story that the Deadwood Dick character in this serial was intended to be black but was played by a white actor to "appease" the studio executives is strictly an "urban legend". There was a real-life black cowboy known as Deadwood Dick, but this serial was based on a completely different figure, a fictional pulp hero named Deadwood Dick from turn-of-the-century dime novels. Hence, there was never any question of making the serial's Deadwood Dick black. See more »

Deadwood Dick is available from collectors at The Serial Squadron. It pits Deadwood Dick against the evil Skull in a fast paced western of 15 chapters. It features Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickock characters as well. This a very good effort from Columbia studios and is directed by Laurel and Hardy director James Horne. There is humor but it goes hand in hand with the action.
