The back pf the circular provides a synopsis of the film, followed by questions about the outcome of the plot; the end provides a space in which the theater can insert its name, but the space is blank. The Western, The Crimson Skull, was released in 1921 and featured Anita Bush, Lawrence Chenault, Steve Reynolds, and Bill Pickett, a world champion rodeo rider.|
