The Fox company's greatest asset, Western hero Tom Mix, was badly burned by gunpowder during a fight with co-star Francis McDonald while making this silent Western. This time, Mix plays The Fighting Ace of the Texas Rangers, charged with capturing a group of stage robbers. He dons the disguise of a highwayman, sticks up a stagecoach, and makes the acquaintance of the real gang leader's (McDonald) pretty daughter (Marjorie Daw). That complicates matters for a while, of course, but everything ends happily when the girl proves to be only an orphan brought up by the villain. The trade magazine Variety's review promised the audience "...plenty of action and an entirely new method of exterminating a crew of desperadoes."
