Universal's sloppy-looking cowboy star Hoot Gibson plays the carefree son of the tough prison warden (Frank Beal) in this fine late-silent Gibson western. The penal colony is enjoying the presence of a very liberal-minded supervisor (Eugenia Gilbert), with whom Hoot naturally falls in love. She, however, is too busy rehabilitating the inmates to spare him a minute, so the resourceful hero masquerades as a hardened criminal and a trouble maker. He is soon involved with a gang of cutthroats and must use all his cunning to get out of the jam. Poverty row producer-director-star Denver Dixon (aka Art Mix aka Victor Adamson) is seen briefly as one of the inmates. The film was directed by Henry MacRae, who for many years was head of Universal's serial unit.
