The screen's first Tarzan, Elmo Lincoln (née Otto Linkenhelter), both directed and starred in this obscure poverty row Western about a spoiled Easterner who, after being hit over the head, finds himself stranded in a rough border town. Despite wearing evening clothes, our hero finds his manhood by rescuing a damsel in distress (Millicent Fisher) from a gang of Mexican kidnappers. Not a natural screen actor (to put it mildly), the barrel-chested Lincoln left films in 1926, returning to play a few bit parts 20 years later.
