Leo Maloney, one of the best (if not best-looking) of the second-echelon silent western stars, heads the cast of High Hand. Maloney plays Jack, a fun-loving cowpoke who'd rather indulge in random acts of chivalry and athleticism than hunker down to his job. When a local rancher is beaten and robbed by a gang of thugs, Jack champions the poor man's cause. Donning a mask and cape, Jack transforms into "The Collector," robbing the villains of their ill-gotten gains and redistributing said gains to their rightful owners. By film's end, our hero discovers that the ringleader of the bad guys is Wheeler Oakman, the town's leading citizen.
