Mary Pickford's brother Jack starred in this silent oater as a boxer who runs West after killing an opponent in the ring. He obtains work as a ranch hand and uses his fists to rid the community of a gang of Mexican outlaws. Produced by the Oliver Morosco Photoplay Company for Paramount release, the film was directed by William Desmond Taylor, a handsome if somewhat mysterious Irishman who on February 1, 1922 became the victim in Hollywood's most notorious murder case. Billed as "Hart Hoxie," future Universal star Jack Hoxie played the role of ranch foreman in this film.
