Tumbleweeds was a 1925 Western and the last movie starring William S. Hart (1864-1946). It tells the story of the land rush on a narrow strip of Cherokee territory in Oklahoma during 1893. Hart directed the 78-minute film and acted in the film, while directing was credited to King Baggot. Baggot certainly didn't need the credit - he appeared in 269 motion pictures, wrote 18 screenplays and directed 45 movies. Barbara Bedford played Hart's co-star and United Artists was the distributor. Contemporary film historians have praised Tumbleweeds for Hart's performance, an ambitious land rush depiction and for including minorities in the cast.
