From a November 1921 newspaper ad for the film: "A funny film of life as it might be. A fantasy of cowboys who saddle automobiles and bad men who get wild on ice cream cones. This is the first [Larry] Semon comedy we have been able to get for over two months and can't get another for a long time, so don't miss The Fall Guy. Said to be his best." [1]
