This obscure silent western features Bill Cody as a cowboy who discovers that his stock is all but worthless due to the bankruptcy of a ranch owner. The supposedly worthless stock certificate bears the name of waitress Joan Meredith's long-lost father, who suddenly reappears to save Cody from ruin. A former stunt-rider and a strong, silent type, Cody was popular with audiences tired of the flamboyant style of western stars such as Tom Mix. Heroine Meredith hailed from Hot Springs, Arkansas and was voted a 1925 WAMPAS Baby Star by Hollywood publicists. She retired right after King of the Saddle, married well, and became a well-known Beverly Hills matron.
