Three years later, as the first engine, piloted by engineer Monahan, leaves Cheyenne, the Union Pacific hires trouble shooter Jeff Butler to keep order on the railroad.

The man who really started the "Western Craze" was the Wild West showman William Cody, who made The life of Buffalo Bill in 1913. Tom Mix was the next western screen hero, followed by William S. Hart, who dignified the genre with films like Narrow Trail and Tumbleweeds. These films were a celebration of the West, establishing a tradition that continues to this day
