Minor-league silent cowboy Bruce Gordon starred in this miniscule western, produced by poverty row regular Barney A Goodman, as a Texas Ranger cleaning up a corrupt frontier town by posing as a wealthy businessman. A South African by birth, the dark-haired Gordon had earlier appeared twice opposite temperamental serial queen Ruth Roland and the two did not hit it off. Reportedly, Roland managed to more-or-less blacklist Gordon in Hollywood to the point where he could only find employment in obscure westerns such as Ahead of the Law. Not surprisingly, he became a casualty of the sound revolution.
