If a silent film had the word "fangs" in the title, it usually meant that the film starred a dog (or sometimes, that the film was a "dog"). Fangs of the Wild spotlights still another Rin Tin Tin wannabe, this one named Ranger. Human heroine Blossom Williams (Dorothy Kitchen) is forced to marry nasty Rufe Anderson (Syd Crossley, normally seen in slapstick comedy roles). Blossom wants to bring her pet dog Ranger along for the honeymoon, but Rufe hates the mutt and tries to kill it at every opportunity. When handsome Larry Holbrook (Sam Nelson) tries to protect Blossom, Rufe puts Larry on his "hit list." It is giving nothing away to reveal that the villain is thwarted by faithful old Ranger.
