Low-budget producer Lester F. Scott Jr. and director Richard Thorpe got slightly pretentious with this silent Western in which a cowboy (Buddy Roosevelt) saves a girl (Nell Bradley) from a dastardly, mustache-twirling villain (Joe Rickson). In the style of early "art films," the characters bore descriptive rather than personal names (e.g. Roosevelt was "The Cowboy," James Sheridan was "The Boy," Emma Tansey was "The Mother"). Functioning as Roosevelt's sidekick in this film, Sheridan, who later billed himself Sherry Tansey, was the real-life son of Emma Tansey and director Robert Emmet Tansey.
