Yak Halliday (Yakima Canutt) loses his money and his horse to a crooked card player, Parson Larkin (James Corey, more familiarly credited as Jim Corey), who's as handy with a gun as he is with a marked deck. But when he finds out that Larkin and his outfit are running from the law, and all have bounties on their heads, Halliday takes out after them. This late-era silent is a superb vehicle for Yakima Canutt, who demonstrates his trick-riding and other stunt-skills throughout its running time as easily as some cowboy actors walk across a dusty street or tilt their hats back, and Jim Corey makes a memorable villain as well.
