Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Reed Howes, the original Arrow Collar man, stars in the action-packed Danger Quest. Set amongst the African diamond mines, the story concerns a fearless young mining engineer named Bob Rollins (Reed Howes) who must contend not only with the natural dangers surrounding him, but also such human antagonists as all-around villain Otto Shugars (Fred Kohler Sr.) J.P. McGowan, later a prolific "B"-western director, was seen as seedy gambler Colonel Spiffy, while Ethel Shannon, one of the busiest if not most famous starlets of the silent screen, is the heroine Nan Colby. Also in the cast as tribal chieftain Umhattan is veteran black actor George Reed, who was normally seen as a Southern minister. Some of Reed Howes' stunting in Danger Quest is not to be believed, especially when he rides his horse between two pursuing riders then pushes both men out of their saddles!
