Universal's also-ran cowboy hero Ted Wells starred in this routine silent western directed by genre specialist Ray Taylor. Wells played "Six Gun" Phil Lang, a stalwart cowboy who comes to the aid of a beleaguered old miner (Buck Connors). The oldtimer is having problems with a gang of claim jumpers headed by the sly-looking Wilbur Mack, but Six Gun has the law -- and pretty Lotus Thompson -- on his side. The studio issued potboilers like this as so much sausage, but the Wells unit ranked below those of Hoot Gibson and Fred Humes.
