Former socialite Maurice "Lefty" Flynn made a bid for western stardom in this mild silent western about a stranger mistaken for an outlaw, the notorious "Night Hawk." He finds a believer in lovely Winifred Sampson (Eva Novak) who shelters the presumed outlaw from the authorities until her fiancee, unscrupulous dam engineer William Kirk (Wallace Beery) turns him in. The Stranger, however, is in reality a detective in disguise and has enough evidence to arrest Kirk, the real outlaw. The commonplace plot was used twice more, in 1927 (as a vehicle for Tom Mix) and 1933, starring George O'Brien. The brawny Flynn never made it as a bona fide western star and was actually better known from the gossip pages than for any particular film.
