Broncho Billy’s positive image was no accident. Essanay marketed Anderson’s westerns as “uplifting” entertainment. Billy was the very model of a model American—a defender of motherhood, children, and the innocent, as well as an advocate for Christian beliefs and Victorian values. “Broncho Billy has been grinding out the better sort of Wild West Indian pictures,” noted one observer. ”17 Broncho Billy was a perfect fit for audiences in the early twentieth century. His potent blend of traditional American values, nonstop action, and images of the mythic West appealed to all social classes.

Anderson’s fine acting made the Broncho Billy character come alive for audiences, who could relate to his sense of humor, personality flaws, struggles between good and evil, and basic human frailty. There was always an element of pathos surrounding Broncho Billy, making him the western hero equivalent of another Essanay star—Charlie Chaplin. Audiences were also fascinated by other characters in Broncho Billy westerns, including independent females and memorable Indians and Mexicans. Broncho Billy greatly influenced the western genre.

14 Although Gilbert Anderson sometimes played a nonwhite hero in films, such as A Mexican’s Gratitude (1909) or An Indian’s Sacrifice (1910), his greatest success came with a series of films that focused on a recognizable white cowboy hero named Broncho Billy. He developed the character partly to counter the critics and social reformers who condemned violence and immorality in westerns, but Anderson also believed that the character would allow Essanay to develop a special niche in a market already saturated by westerns.
