Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Veteran action specialist J.P. McGowan both produced and directed this very late silent western released by his own ill--named Big Productions Film Corp. The former husband and co-star of serial queen Helen Holmes, McGowan peddled his little oaters to rural movie theaters not yet equipped with sound systems. One of the last cowboy stars to emerge during the silent era, Bob Steele starred as a cowboy who saves pretty Jean Reno's ranch from nasty Lew Meehan. Like most independent producers of the era, McGowan brought his little ensemble to a dusty California hamlet and commenced filming. Outdoor sets were free, of course, and the local townspeople milled about as extras for a few dollars and a box lunch. In other words, everyone had a pleasant couple of days.
