The husband-and-wife team of Jack Hoxie and Marin Sais starred in this inexpensive oater produced by Ben Wilson's Unity Photoplays. Jack is falsely accused of a shooting actually committed by the sheriff's wife (Sais). He escapes and becomes a hero by catching the bandit (Wilbur McGaugh) who robbed the stage. Cleared of all wrongdoings, Jack marries the outlaw's sister (Evelyn Nelson. Hoxie made 15 Westerns and one serial (Thunderbolt Jack, 1920) for Ben Wilson's various production units before moving over to shoestring producer Anthony J. Xydias and, eventually, Universal.
