Stalwart movie hero Kenneth Harlan has the situation well in hand during most of The Fighting Edge. Disguised as half-breed, government agent Juan de Dios O'Rourke, Harlan sneaks across the Mexican border to rescue fellow agent Joyce (W.A. Carroll), who's in the clutches of smugglers. Together with Joyce's daughter Phoebe (Patsy Ruth Miller), O'Rourke hatches a foolproof escape plan. Things get dicey when O'Rourke and Phoebe must figure out a way to escape the smugglers themselves. Directing Fighting Edge was Henry "Pathe" Lehrmann, a veteran of the Keystone comedy mills. The film was based on a novel by William MacLeod Raine.
