New York-born Tom Tyler, one of the late silent era's more realistic screen cowboys., exposes a counterfeit ring run by his ranch foreman (Albert J. Smith) in this average oater that also includes a thrilling transfer from horse to automobile. Tyler was good-looking and stalwart, and although his western stardom never reached the heights of, say, a John Wayne or even a Gene Autry (Tyler was certainly more acceptable than Autry!), Tom Tyler continued to star in above-average oaters in the sound era until a crippling bone disease forced his retirement. .
