A New York society girl becomes a target of land-grabbing bandits when she inherits a Western ranch in this uneasy five-reel feature version of a ten chapter serial. The original chapterplay was based on the novel Janie of the Waning Glories by Raymond Spears and featured veteran Universal star Dorothy Phillips in what was supposed to be a comeback effort. Produced by C. W. Patton, a retired rancher, the serial was not one of Pathé's better efforts, and the subsequent feature version was a distinct failure. Phillips continued in films as a bit player and extra until the early '60s. She was the wife of veteran director Alan Holubar.
