Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This George O'Brien western is based on a novel by Max Brand, previously filmed as the 1920 Tom Mix vehicle The Untamed. Cast as devil-may-car Whistlin' Dan Barry, our hero rides into a passel of trouble in a wide-open town. Warned to leave the premises or else, Whistlin' Dan refuses to do so, sticking around long enough to whomp villain Jim Silent (Mitchell Lewis) and romance heroine Kate Cumberland (Louise Huntington). Fourth-billed George Brent would soon leave westerns in favor for the rarefied world of Warner Bros. soap operas. The 1937 20th Century-Fox programmer Fair Warning is not a remake.
