The Soilers

(Hal Roach Studios, 1923)

In this parody of The Spoilers, Bob Canister strikes it rich in the Alaskan gold rush only to find himself plunged into a tumultuous battle with Smacknamara, a claim-jumper who, with the aid of the underhanded sheriff, has stolen Canister’s find.

This edition of The Soilers is sourced from a foreign release that is significantly more complete than the version in common circulation.

Also known as Le Héros de l'Alaska.
