Produced by Gower Gulch entrepreneur Phil Goldstone, this silent Western starred Hollywood's sole Australian cowboy, Rex "Snowy" Baker, as a soda jerk mistaken for famous prizefighter Cyclone Carter. A fortuitous blow to the head, however, changes the meek boy into a fighting demon who not only wins the big fight but also the girl. A former Olympic diving champion, "Snowy" Baker was Australia's first screen idol before American producer Phil Goldstone brought him to Hollywood in 1924. Baker's American career proved a distinct failure, however, but he stuck around long enough to teach 1940s B-Western star Al "Lash" La Rue how to handle his trademark whip.
