Wild Bill Elliott was a major western star for over 15 years. Known, and proclaimed by himself and others as a "peaceable" man, his screen persona met evil head-on and emerged victorious.

From 1940 through 1954, Elliott was listed as a top moneymaking western star in the Motion Picture Herald poll of exhibitors and the Boxoffice magazine poll from 1945 through 1953.
