One of the silent era's great beauties, Esther Ralston, began her screen career in minor oaters like Crossing Trails. The future Mrs. Darling (in the still breathtaking 1924 version of Peter Pan) plays Helen Stratton, a young girl falsely accused of murder and on the lam from the Law. She obtains a job as cook on the Warren ranch, whose owner, the strapping Jim (Pete Morrison), not only grows to love her but unmasks the real killer. With nasty-looking Lew Meehan in the cast, the identity of said killer was not hard to guess.
