Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Fred Thomson's first film of 1927 told the exciting story of Don Miguel, part Spaniard, part Irish, who rescues a party of settlers stranded in the desert. The leader of the group, Pettingell (Noah Young), pays him back by filing a claim against Don Mike's land and making lewd overtures toward his girlfriend (Ruth Clifford). When the local mayor (Albert Prisco) is found murdered, Don Mike is blamed and forced to flee. He returns disguised as a monk and unmasks the real killer, none other than his old enemy Pettingell. Thomson's horse, Silver King, earned second billing in this film and was even awarded a character name: "Rey de Plata." Like most of Thomson's FBO Westerns, Don Mike was written by the star's wife, Frances Marion, under the pen name "Frank M. Clifton."
