Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Morganson's Finish was inspired by the Jack London story of the same name. The hero, Dick Gilbert (Johnnie Walker), is in love with wealthy Barbara Wesley (Anita Stewart), but he is disgraced in her eyes through the underhanded machinations of his rival Dan Morganson (Mahlon Hamilton). With nowhere else to go, Dick heads off to gold-rush territory in Alaska. Unbeknownst to our hero, Morganson likewise heads northward, intending to rid the world of Dick once and for all. But as indicated by the title, it is Morganson who meets his "finish" -- despite his strenuous efforts to toss Dick off a mountain cliff. Victor Potel, who'd been in films since 1908 at least, supplies comedy relief as a dull-witted Scandinavian.
