Based on Philip Le Noir's The Man Who Wouldn't Take Off His Hat, this low-budget William Steiner production starred Neal Hart as a ranch hand mistaken for an outlaw. Hart's Sam Ramsey receives a letter from his sister Mary (Gertrude Ryan), whose husband has forced her with him to Mexico. Ramsey goes after his villainous brother-in-law, but is ambushed and left for dead. The villain assumes his identity and a recovered Sam is hard pressed to prove who he really is. Producer Steiner didn't spent many dollars on this typical silent oater which according to advertisements was "Prepared for the screen by Neal Hart."
