The always entertaining Hoot Gibson starred in this unusual silent western in which the hero saves the fire chief's daughter from both a lecherous politician and a dangerous fire. Gibson excelled in this kind of fairy tale where his character's innate bashfulness is countered by furious action. Gibson rarely used violence in his films and hardly ever wore a gun-belt. Playing the heroine's father in this film is Frank Beal, a veteran director who worked for Selig and Fox in the 1910s.
