Above from a pressbook or film release announcement: "Wm. K. Hackett and Eunice Goodrich in a series a series of Twelve 2-reel westerns." Allied Distributing Corporation "triangle A" logo in bottom right corner.



Crop/blowup from the bottom right corner of the Hackett/Goodrich announcement above. Note that this press material mentions "Wm. K. Hackett formerly of Selig fame". But Selig folded around 1918. and as noted earlier, Hackett/Germain was living in Carthage, Missouri around 1916 when he registered for the draft. And then he did US Army service in WW1.

Top of several pages announcing: "Shamrock Photoplays present Wm. K. Hackett in PERILS OF THE WEST". This appears to be the first (and only) of the Hackett/Eunice Goodrich two-reelers to be filmed. Distributed by Primrose Pictures Corporation, New York City.

Below is one of the several ads in the pressbook from PERILS OF THE WEST. Note the bottom left corner and the mention of "5Reels" - does that mean the film wasn't a two-reeler?

Above are Hackett, P. S. McGeeney, Sr. and Eunice Goodrich (see Goodrich's face in that pressbook ad at the top of this page). Note the checkerboard shirt on Hackett which is the same as the pressbook photo below. This still is probably from PERILS OF THE WEST.
