This typical silent Western potboiler starred Bob Custer, a cowboy hero whose stetson was rather more impressive than his acting capability. Custer played Kincaid Currier, foreman of the Geyser Canyon Ranch. In an attempt to make Kin jealous, Judith Lamb (Anne Sheridan), the ranch owner's daughter, openly flirts with crooked Dallas (Richard R. Neill). The ploy works all too well, and Kin leaves the ranch in favor of a job with the railroad. Discovering that Dallas is secretly re-routing shipments of gold to Mexico, Kin confronts the crook, who abducts Judith as a last resort. With Kin in hot pursuit, villain and heroine soon find themselves in a runaway railroad car heading for the inevitable steep incline. The girl is saved by a daring jump into the river, while Dallas continues on to oblivion.
