Phlegmatic silent screen hero Dick Hatton starred in this very minor Western which centered around the all too familiar genre cliché: brash hero, lovely rancher's daughter and crooked ranch foreman. The supporting cast was rather more interesting than either Hatton or the film itself. Leading lady Marilyn Mills was a Dutch stunt-rider, whose husband, producer J. Charles Davis, has been credited with discovering Gary Cooper. The film's sheriff was one Leon Kent who, as Leon DeLaMothe, directed several low-budget oaters during the 1920s. And, finally, there was Ray Thompson, here playing one of the villain's henchmen. A well-known stunt-man, Thompson later was Buster Keaton's ranch foreman in Go West (1925). He drowned in Alaska's Copper River during the epic filming of The Trail of '98 in 1927.
