One of the many westerns feature films shot in Santiago Canyon, Orange County, California, 1914. This is possibly one of the many Pathe productions shot in Orange County Park (later known as the Irvine Ranch) and Santiago Canyon during this time period. While the film title is unknown, the central figure is identified as, Art Acord (1890-1931), wearing a fringed buckskin jacket. In this scene, five cowboys are listening to a seated man, dressed in a "Wild Bill Cody" type of fringed buckskins. They are assembled by a log cabin. Art Acord's filmography lists several films from this time period that this still image may be from, possibly "Buck Parvin in the Movies", "Squaw Man" or "Custer's Last Fight."
