In his final film for poverty row company FBO, silent screen Western star Fred Thomson played a miner who finds himself swindled by an evil horse trader, Decker (J.P. McGowan). Having failed to corner the market in horses, Decker manages to arouse the local Indians led by Red Dog (Dan Peterson). Happily, Thomson and his wonder horse, Silver King, become wise to the schemes and save the town of Coldwater in the nick of time. Leaving his home of nearly four years, Thomson signed with more upmarket Paramount even before Arizona Nights had been released. Sadly, he died after an operation for gall stones, December 25, 1928, having only completed four Westerns for his new studio.
